A bit of troubling information seems to have leaked out of the Gramercy Park Hotel this week, by way of a Rose Bar guest:
Eater -- not sure how accurate this is though it seems legit. I overheard a bar tender and hotel staffer talking about the GPH's restaurant yesterday at Rose Bar. Conversation when something like: Staffer: 'did you hear Yau could be as late as November?' Bartender: 'what a shitshow.'The latest by way of official word is that there is no new update. The semi-official status (ie. from hotel phone operators) is, "we don't have a firm date yet, unfortunately, but we're hoping for March or April." And so we wait.
