As the Gramercy Park Hotel gets ready to unleash Danny Meyer’s Maialino, we’ve received word that Meyer will also be handling food and beverage for the Private Roof Club and Garden. Meanwhile, Josh Picard of Joe’s Pub, Locanda Verde, Lure, and Chinatown Brasserie will be taking care of the food-and-beverage program at Rose Bar, as well as the hotel’s room service. We’re told changes will be minimal, but it is another feather in Picard’s cap, and promising news for anyone who frequents the rooftop garden.
