Is Jason Santos Really Opening a New Restaurant So Soon?


He tells Eater that he has plans to open a new place, tentatively called XYZ, in September across from the Wang Center: “200 seats, two floors, much bigger. Super fun, American, really crazy, but very approachable and simple.” He says he’ll know more in 48 hours. One-year-old Blue Inc. has gotten mixed reviews (and recently underwent a cocktail revamp), so hopefully Santos, who we really like, isn’t spreading himself too thin. [EB]
