Status: Officially opened to the public today.
One week after a huge blow out preview party, Ember Room, the new mega-project from Todd English and Ian Chalermkittichai, opened to the public officially today. It's English's first of many projects for 2011, and it could be the most curious, at least in terms of design. The ceiling is covered in gold bells, and there's an oven emblazoned with English's initials. The rest of the place is pretty much covered in wood. As for the food, they'll be serving a menu of "American-Asian barbecue," including bbq pork belly, chocolate ribs, Thai spiced meatball skewers, whole roasted suckling pig, and items like fried rice from the stone wok.
