Party boy chef Todd English has another food hall up his sleeve. The celebrity chef has signed a 15-year lease for nearly 12,000-square-feet of space in the historic New York Times building at 229 West 43rd St., near Times Square. The American Market by Todd English is expected to open next summer, according to a statement from developer Kushner Companies, the real estate company of Jared Kushner, who’s now famous for being Donald Trump’s son-in-law. Info on the market’s offerings are still slim, but the developer says it will "celebrate the nation’s cultural heritage through both casual and fast casual options." It will also have "a hydroponic herb garden wall" that will offer some herb and vegetables.

The chef already has The Todd English Food Hall, which is a popular "European-inspired" project at The Plaza. He’s also in the process of opening a 200-seat restaurant in FiDi with his son Oliver called The English. He’s had a slew of restaurant closings, including CrossBar, Chateau Cherbuliez, Ember Room, The Libertine, and English Is Italian, but the Post insists English’s hard partying reputation does not preclude him for working hard on overseeing the new food hall. Stay tuned for more details as they become available.
