Add this one to your fall preview lists: Ace Watanasuparp and Chai Huadwattana of Spot Dessert Bar and OBAO have hired Todd English and Ian Chalermkittichai of Kittichai as consulting chefs at a still unnamed restaurant at 647 Ninth Avenue near West 45th Street. Roy Nachum (who just added Mel’s Burger Bar to his resume) will design the bi-level, 140-seat space and we’re told by a rep that the menu will have a medium price point and consist of “American BBQ with Asian accents spanning a wide cross-section of Asian cuisines, including Indian, South East Asian, Korean, etc.” Look for an opening in November.
