For weeks, Eater sources have been buzzing about John Fraser's involvement in the Standard East Village hotel, and just yesterday, industry gossip mill ChompChump returned from its one year hiatus with some juicy intel about the deal. The blog notes that the Dovetail chef is "an uncrossed T and an I shy of a dot away from having food and beverage at Andre East." Apparently, the new place will have a rotisserie theme.
For those unfamiliar with ChompChump, it's the mysterious blog that accurately predicted the EMP sale, the Acme revamp, the shuttering of Kenmare, and the opening of Tertulia, to name a few big deals. Eater reached out to Fraser and The Standard, but neither of them are ready to comment on the project just yet.
ChompChump also hints that Keith McNally has a brand new restaurant in the works, and that Joe and Mario will be bringing their hit L.A. restaurant Mozza to NYC sometime soon.
