For the last couple of months, rumors have circulated that Ken Friedman is working on a new space within the Ace Hotel. No, it's not the Tin Pan Alley themed basement bar. And no, it's not the now open bar/event space Liberty Hall. This is a new gastro addition to the growing Friedmanland on 29th Street. But the question has been, what else could he possibly add to that hotel? A tipster writes in today with a compelling answer:
THE JOHN DORY IS COMING BACK!!!!!A pared down version of The John Dory in a highly trafficked area, with run off from The Breslin? Sounds like a win.
The new John Dory is located in the ACE hotel in the corner store of 29th and Broadway. It will be oyster bar/old John Dory inspired design.
Update: Friedman confirms his plans to Fork in the Road.
