NuVo Restaurant moving to Newport

Mark Bodenstein, chef and owner at Nuvo restaurant in Florence, announced a few minutes ago that NuVo will be moving to Newport due to the sale of the property in which they've been operating. According to an email he sent out earlier this afternoon:

We will continue to do wine dinners at our new location our next one is scheduled September 23 or 30. We are moving into the old Mokka building at 527 York St. Newport, KY. our last day of operation will be tomorrow August 2, 2008. I know this message comes quickly and I apologize for that, we have tried to delay a much as possible to finish out August but, due to the selling of our property we can not wait any longer. We hope to see you all at our new location for dinner in September. Our hours will be from Tue-Thurs 5-9 Fri-Sat 5-11. 
Great news for Newport, not so great for Florence!

I wonder what NuVo will do about parking? Bernard's Bakery across the street owns the parking lot next to the building, and Mokka customers were not allowed to park there. I'm simply repeating a rumor here, but I heard that the parking issue with the bakery was one of the catalysts for Mokka's move.

Lack of parking hasn't hurt York Street Cafe though, so NuVo ought to do well in that location.
