Next Monday, Marc Forgione will open his second New York restaurant, Khe-Yo, in the Duane Street space that formerly housed Duane Park. Forgione's longtime right-hand man Soulayphet Schwader is the executive chef/partner at this new restaurant. Flo Fab reports that Khe-Yo will serve Laotian-inspired Southeast Asian cuisine, including dishes like sticky rice with sausage, and lemongrass-rubbed spare ribs.
Forgione is also gearing up to open an outpost of his Atlantic City steakhouse American Cut at 363 Greenwich St. in Tribeca. The chef is opening this restaurant with LDV Hospitality, the company that operates Scarpetta, Veritas, and Bistro La Promenade, to name a few. As you may recall, Forgione was going to open a steak restaurant with the EMM Group in the Abe & Arthur's space, but the plans fell through, and now EMM is going the Mexican route with Akhtar Nawab. American Cut will open in September.
