Flo Fab reports today that superstar chef and restaurateur Tom Colicchio is planning a new restaurant. He and his partner in 'wichcraft, Sisha Ortuzar, will open Riverpark, a space overlooking the East River on East 29th Street between 1st Ave. and the FDR, this October. It's way out there (Google Street view barely makes it!), but as Tom's reps contend, the location offers "striking views" of the river, and it sits just a block or two from the Water Club. Also, it should be awesome for all the hospital workers in the area.
Ortuzar, the man behind 'wichcraft's relatively new dinner program, will create the menu for Riverpark and will be in charge of the kitchen.
