Renaissance Enlists Blue Ribbon to Open Hotel Restaurants Nationwide

Chop Suey

The Renaissance Hotel is hoping the Bromberg brothers can succeed where Zak Pelaccio’s Chop Suey failed, and has enlisted them to open R Lounge (the first of nineteen restaurants they’ll do for the chain) on September 13. Says Diner’s Journal, “Among the Blue Ribbon classics at the R Lounge, starting Sept. 13, will be white bean toast, smoked salmon toast, grilled cheese panini, fried chicken wings, fried rock shrimp and pulled pork sandwiches.”
