Yesterday, Fork in the Road posted about a Harold Dieterle sighting at the former Philippe Chow Express space on lower 6th Avenue. The Perilla owner and Top Chef alum has been considering a new restaurant for over a year now and was still actively looking for a space as recently as a few months ago. Dieterle wouldn't confirm to them but he does give it up to the New York Times blog, telling them that he'll open a casual Thai restaurant in the space this fall called Kin Shop.
And this is the one quote they could wrestle out of him: "I’m happy to be staying in the Village."
