Jean-Georges Vongerichten gets on the blog today to pimp his new Market restaurant in Boston—one of 50 new spaces he plans to open before 2014—and say goodbye to his 18 year-old tribute to Southeast Asia, Vong. He still says he's hoping to reopen it soon elsewhere and announces that a location of Wolfgang's Steakhouse, a chain that is expanding internationally yet has just two New York restaurants, will open in the space. Another steakhouse in Midtown!:
I wish him the best of luck and hope Wolfgang enjoys the space as much as I did. I love Vong, and I know many others do too. I’m looking for another space to reopen Vong in the future and will keep you posted when that happens.Kind of sad the closure of a two decade-old restaurant didn't merit a blog post of its own, but hey, JGV is a busy man.
