Keep an eye out for Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s first Western expansion, as he brings his cuisine to the new Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills in California as early as June, Eater reports. The all-day restaurant will feature a “greatest hits” menu from his New York concepts, including triple-Michelin-starred Jean-Georges, ABC Kitchen and ABC Cocina. In addition to the 150 seat indoor-outdoor space, plans are underway for a rooftop cocktail lounge featuring small bits from Vongerichten.
Similarly high-wattage chef Michael Mina is slated to open his first Nashville concept next year. Bourbon Steak, a 280-seater, will be the topper on the new 33-story JW Marriott Nashville hotel.
