Justin Hilbert, who earned raves at Gwynnett St. until his departure last April, is teaming up with Smorgas Chef restaurateur Morten Sohlberg for a new project in the West Village. On January 20, Sohlberg will close the West 12th Street location of Smorgas Chef, and he will reopen the space in the spring as a new restaurant with Hilbert in the kitchen. No word yet on what type of food Hilbert will serve, but expect something with a farm-to-table focus. Rumor has it that this new restaurant might be called "Blenheim Hill Farm," which is also the name of Sohlberg's upstate property where he grows food for his restaurants.
