A upcoming New York City hotel has drawn two heavy-hitters to open new restaurant concepts: The New York Times reports restaurateur Keith McNally (Balthazar, et al) and chef Tom Colicchio will each open concepts in the Financial District's Beekman Hotel. McNally's as-yet-unnamed restaurant will contain 90 seats and serve breakfast through dinner (Eater NY floats the rumor that the space may or may not be home to a second coming of his iconic restaurant Pastis, which temporarily closed last year). Details are scarce for Colicchio's concept, called the Living Room, but it'll be tasked with providing room service for the hotel and private-party catering.
According to Colicchio, his Beekman project is at least one year away from opening; updates on both as they become available.
