KTCHN, the comfy neighborhood joint situated in "New York’s first straight-friendly gay hotel," the Out NYC, has implemented Dale Schnell (Setai New York, Artisanal, etc.) as executive chef. Slated to open in early June, KTCHN's menu is focused on "American classics" with both casual and fine-dining areas. Expect XL French fries and some fine-looking meat.
