New York star chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten is planning a new Italian food restaurant in a hotel on the Lower East Side. The acclaimed chef's name is tied to the Public Hotel development at 215 Chrystie Street, as Bowery Boogie first reported. It's not a total surprise — his frequent partner Phil Suarez has publicly talked bringing the mega-chef to the hotel since last year. The massive project includes a market and coffee bar, a restaurant with wood-burning pizzas and pastas, and a garden with a bar, according to a preliminary questionnaire filed to Manhattan Community Board 3.

Other venues are planned for the hotel, but JGV's projects will be the star of the show. According to a sample menu, it will be an all-day Italian restaurant. The preliminary menu includes items like toast with Russ and Daughters salmon, pizza with black truffle and fontina cheese, three-cheese ravioli, and roasted hake with a maple-celeriac puree and pink peppercorn vinaigrette.

It's not the first time Vongerichten has worked with a hotel. The chef also created the menu for Pump Room, a restaurant and bar at the Public Hotel in Chicago. The to-be-named New York Public Hotel restaurant is also just one of several projects Vongerichten has going on. He's expected to open the vegetarian spin-off of ABC Kitchen, ABCV, near Union Square soon and a 10,000-square-foot casual restaurant at South Street Seaport. He's also been spotted eyeing a historic property in the Hamptons. Take a look at the sample menu below, and stay tuned for information as it becomes available.
