Shockingly, it looks like Wakiya, the epically-delayed and botched restaurant at Ian Shraeger's Gramercy Park Hotel is actually, really, truly, actually going to open. If you want to get in on the action (probably accurate: if you want to get in at all), they're holding an open call for staff tomorrow. Signs are posted around the hotel and the notice is on Craigslist as well:
Servers, Bussers, Runners, Barbacks, Hostesses, Hosts, CooksCurrent non-official-but-accurate estimates for when the venue is slated to open: July 2007.
New high-end Asian Restaurant to open inside the Gramercy Park Hotel is conducting massive Open Interviews on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, May 21, 22, & 23rd between the hours of 11AM and 1PM.
