To push his new cookbook, Urban Italian (out last week), Andrew Carmellini is joining the ranks of blogging chefs like Ripert and Vongerichten (actually, Vongerichten hasnt updated since his mid-August post chiding Platt). Okay, so hes not really blogging per se, but his new Website has photos from his travels, book-tour dates, and even news about his new restaurant, which the Feedbag revealed would not be in the old Tasting Room space after all. Says Carmellini, I promise it'll be located somewhere between the East River and the Hudson, but I can't tell you more than that just yet. Ha. No, but seriously. Where will it be?
