Grub learns that the Hilton New York’s Tuscan restaurant, Etrusca, is shutting down next month. We reached out for comment and learned from communications director Mark Ricci that the hotel will use the space for a new Executive Lounge, which will move down from the 44th floor. However, there will eventually be a new restaurant in the hotel’s lobby. Writes Ricci via e-mail: “The concept is to be a prototype for Hilton Worldwide, and Hilton has enlisted a top design firm to bring their vision to fruition.”
