In an insightful interview today with Bill Chait, the restaurateur behind Rivera, Picca, Bestia, and Sotto, Eater learns the history of this entrepreneur’s rise from a partner at Louise’s to the overseer of city-wide empire. Even better, we get a glimpse into the future to learn that Neal Fraser’s long-awaited concept at St. Vibiana will not necessarily be a return to Grace, Walter Manke’s forthcoming bistro concept Republique won’t necessarily be French, but involve wood-fired dishes and pig ear nachos, the bakery Short Cake will open soon in LAX and expand around the city, while Nancy Silverton is taking a bigger role to refine and define Short Order, and that Chait has a big secret project up his sleeves with Eli Broad in Downtown.
