He's settled on a pun.

Restaurant notes: Starr's new pub will be called...

Stephen Starr will use a pun for the name of his forthcoming English pub, opening Dec. 19-ish, at the corner of 18th and Sansom Streets under chef Robert Aikens.

He's calling it The Dandelion.

But dispense with your notions of yellow weeds.

The logo will be a dandy lion -- as in a big cat dressed to the nines.

Staff is being trained at Washington Square.
