Eater notices that a City Grit dinner announcement contains some vague details about a new project former Ai Fiori chef Chris Jaeckle is planning for fall, "a more refined approach to traditional Italian dishes incorporating globally influenced, and often unexpected, flavors," the invite reads. Onetime Má Pêche macher Tien Ho is also planning a dinner at City Grit, dubbed Farmers & Vintners, and he's "about to make a big leap into a new project" too. This is not surprising at all, since these guys are some of the most talented kitchenless chefs in town; we'll keep our ears out for more details. [Eater NY, City Grit]
