English, Blumenthal, Skinned Frogs

Two rather interesting tidbits from Gael Green today. Todd English and his new partner Sam Hazen have made an offer for a 16,000 sq.ft. building across from Pastis, telling Green, “It would be a total gut buildup, the rooftop, the whole thing.” Second, one of Britain's most famous chefs Heston Blumenthal, in town for StarChefs, has been shooting a segment for his TV show Feast at Chinatown Brasserie, where chef Joe Ng has provided him with buckets of live frogs for a froggy version of "15th century almond blancmange."
