Daniel Boulud's former director of public relations, Georgette Farkas, is striking out on her own. Flo Fab reports that Ms. Farkas will open a casual restaurant at 14 East 60th Street called Rostisserie Georgette. As the name implies, the restaurant will specialize in food cooked on a rotisserie. Georgette started working for Boulud in the kitchen of Le Régence in the Plaza Athénée back in 1985, and continued working with his restaurants until last summer. Her new project is slated to open in the fall.
Flo Fab also learns that Midtown Italian restaurant Il Gattopardo will soon move down the block to the 54th Street space that most recently housed La Petite Maison. The restaurant is expected to reopen in July.
