As Todd English prepares to open Ember Room (his project with Ian Chalermkittichai), were hearing that he has yet another New York project in the works. The folks at Limelight Marketplace tell us that hes taking over two spaces in the back of the building, plus the courtyard that held the Limelight Grill, and on the second week of March, hell open Cross Bar. Reps arent revealing anything about the concept, but apparently a VIP room and a state-of-the-art kitchen will be involved. Meanwhile, the latest on Grimaldis is that its opening February 1 or 2, though it may start handing out some of those free slices next week. Oh, and while were talking Limelight, BlackBook brings news that the daughter of its former proprietor, Peter Gatien, is working on a documentary about Gatiens rise and fall set against the transformation of New York City. So you can finally follow Limelights evolution from coke orgies to Todd English!
