The Post has more details about the mysterious venue Todd English has been planning for the Limelight Marketplace. It’s reported that Cross Bar will be a bi-level “pork specialty eatery” consisting of “lots of reclaimed wood” and three fireplaces for the roasting of suckling pigs. As we reported earlier, there will also be a VIP room, and English, who of course just opened the Ember Room, will also create a “taco bar in an environment that will look like a Mexican village and a burger bar that will look like an old-fashioned diner.” Way to get every trend under one roof!
