Graydon Carter Indebted to Ken Friedman, Damon Wise Opening Own Restaurant

All the puzzle pieces seem to fit...for now.

Once you get past all the Graydon-hearts-Ken stuff, there’s a bit of news in Bloomberg’s Monkey Bar piece: Damon Wise plans to open his own restaurant in the next year with business partner Hayden Felice (a buddy from Craft). He says it’s going to be "a casual, neighborhood venue on Hudson Street, just below the Meatpacking district." Now that’s a novel concept! But seriously, great chef, great year ahead for him.
