In July, Grub Street brought you the interesting news that Georgette Farkas, who started off cooking on the line with a boyish Daniel Boulud in 1985 and went on to serve as the chef’s longtime director of marketing and PR, was opening a 90-seat rotisserie-themed restaurant on the Upper East Side. Today, the Times reports that Rotisserie Georgette will open in September, at 14 East 60th Street. In addition to slow-cooked, farm-raised chicken, the “casual but elegant” restaurant will serve seasonal sides like celery-root pancakes in the fall and truffled baked potatoes in the winter.
