Tyler Florence Eying Another Union Square Project


Once upon a time, Tyler Florence had a plan to open something called Bar Florence in the Hotel Vertigo near Union Square. He pulled the plug on that back in 2009 — which is the subject of a recent lawsuit from some partners there — but now Tablehopper brings rumors that Florence is working with a different hotel, the Hotel Rex (563 Sutter Street at Mason), to possibly take over their Library Bar. Florence wouldn’t exactly confirm the news, but he did say whatever he was working on would be “very cool.” File under: DEVELOPING. [Tablehopper]
