The 2014 boom in hotel restaurants with big name chefs appears to be going strong in 2015. Phil Suarez, a frequent partner of Jean-Georges Vongerichten, is eyeing his first hotel project, likely in Nolita. Suarez tells the Post, "Jean-Georges is the star. He is so prolific, he will come up with something new and exciting for that area...At the moment we are in the early stages of discussion." Vongerichten just opened several spaces in the Edition hotel in Miami including a food hall, restaurant, and bar, and a representative also promises that his latest ABC Kitchen offshoot, ABC Home Grown, should open this spring.
