In a couple of weeks — July 13 to 18, to be exact — Sam Talbot will temporarily turn over Imperial No. Nine's kitchen to South African chef Peter Tempelhoff. Why should you care? Because Tempelhoff will be serving some interesting-sounding dishes, including abalone carpaccio and "wild" oysters with smoked-ostrich tartar. They're still working out pricing, but adventurous eaters unafraid of celebrity-chef overload (and still-unknown prices) can make reservations by calling the restaurant.
