Flo Fab reports that Eric and Bruce Bromberg, the brothers behind the Blue Ribbon empire, are in charge of the food at R Lounge, the upper level lounge with views of Times Square within the Renaissance Hotel. Careful observers will remember the last big name to run the show in this space was Zak Pelaccio with his flub Chop Suey. Starting September 13, they'll serve "white bean toast, smoked salmon toast, grilled cheese panini, fried chicken wings, fried rock shrimp and pulled pork sandwiches."
But wait, there's more! Florence says that they've inked quite the deal with the Renaissance. Their Blue Ribbon cuisine will be offered at 19 other hotel locations around the country.
