A new, 100-seat restaurant is coming to the Empire State Building, The Wall Street Journal reports, but don’t look to the sky: The unnamed white tablecloth restaurant will serve American food on the ground floor and a lower level space inside the landmark. It’ll be operated by the Patina Restaurant Group, which owns Brasserie and Cucina & Co., and is set to open at the “end of 2013.” [WSJ]
