José Andrés Will Open a New York Restaurant Sometime in the Next Five Years

By

When Adam Melonas called off plans for a New York restaurant, we went back to waiting for Jos Andrs to open a place here. But when will the spunky Spaniard finally dock? Doesnt he want an excuse to get wasted with David Chang more often? Today he tells Feast it will happen before Im 45 (hes currently 40): Im working on an American concept restaurant for anywhere that we find the right place. Wait a minute an American concept? Hey, well take what we can get from this versatile chef, but during this time of American concepts, are deconstructed cheeseburgers what we really need from the countrys leading proponent of Spanish avant-garde cuisine?
