While Sirio Maccioni gets ready to open Sirio Ristorante, his other show, Le Cirque, is hitting the road. The glitzy New York eatery will pop up in cities across the country, taking over private-club-type venues in each to re-create “Le Cirque’s modern circus theme including their iconic china, orange orchids and décor,” as an e-mail announcement informs us. Chef Olivier Reginensi is the tour’s ringmaster traveling toque — he’ll offer a five-course menu in each town, with a wine pairing. The lucky cities include Chicago, L.A., San Jose, Dallas, and Houston; more info here.
