Aureole's Charlie Palmer has signed a deal with the owners of The Knickerbocker on 42nd Street to open a trio of restaurants inside the forthcoming hotel. Steve Cuozzo reports that Palmer will oversee a casual American restaurant on the fourth floor, a grab and go cafe on the ground level, and a bar/lounge on the roof of the hotel. The deal is being described as a "partnership." Guests of The Knickerbocker will also get "priority access and preferential treatment" at Aureole across the street.

John Jacob Astor IV opened the Beaux-Arts building as a hotel in 1906. It was converted into office in the 1930s, and new owner FelCor Lodging Trust purchased the building in 2012 for $115 with plans to turn it back into a hotel. The Knickerbocker, and its Charlie Palmer restaurants, will open at the end of the summer.
