David Burke May Open Restaurant in the Buckingham Hotel

David Burke, empire builder.


One of our best sources tells us that David Burke, the mulleted master of high-concept restaurants, has a new project in the works, and it's a big one — judging by its home inside the Buckingham Hotel, at least. Burke's people don't deny that it's in the works but refuse to go into specifics. But since davidburke & donatella won't be closing, and Chicago's David Burke Primehouse basically mints money even without the restaurateur there, we're betting that he'll be opening a meatery modeled after the latter.
