A year after he pulled out of his hotel restaurant The Libertine and two months after announcing a partnership with the Plaza Hotel to build a food court, new details emerge about celeb chef Todd English's latest hotel project. As he mentioned last month, English is teaming up with the new InterContinenal Hotel in Times Square to create a French brasserie. New press materials on the giant hotel report that English "one of the most respected and charismatic chefs in the world" will operating three different dining areas in the hotel and a "dynamic bar area overlooking Broadway that captures the energy of the Theatre District and the urban appeal of historic Hell's Kitchen." Of course, all of that will be immediately overshadowed when the Shake Shack opens on the ground floor.
The hotel is scheduled to open in July.
