Chef Chris Jaeckle earned a lot of praise as the opening chef de cuisine at Michael White's Ai Fiori. Since leaving in November, he's been one of New York's hottest free agent chefs. But now, Jaeckle has finally landed on a new project.
The listing for a pop-up dinner Jaeckle is cooking at City Grit notes that he's now working on a downtown restaurant that will offer "a more refined approach to traditional Italian dishes incorporating globally influenced and often unexpected, flavors." There's no word yet on where the project will be exactly, what it will be called, or when it will open. But if you want to check out what Jaeckle is working on, it looks like there are still some tickets left for his City Grit dinners.
