Plans for a future Gigi on South Beach, rumored last year and entitled "Gigi Village", have been scrapped by restaurateur Amir Ben-Zion, according to Short Order. Ben-Zion's new project taking the place of Gigi Village has been named Cooper Avenue and set to open sometime this summer in the same space at 1661 Pennsylvania Avenue on South Beach. Other than a mysterious website, there isn't any real information to report concerning the project. Stay tuned.
