Eater NY gets word that Pujol chef Enrique Olvera, who last year staged a sold-out dinner with Alex Stupak at Empellón Cocina, is working on a restaurant project at 35 East 21 Street. Pujol consistently appears on several “World’s Best” restaurant lists, and earlier this year Olvera was reportedly trying to open a “high-end Mexican” place in Tribeca. Reached yesterday by phone, the chef told Eater there’s no opening date yet and implies that, while the concept has yet to be hammered out, the menu and approach will be “very casual.” [Eater NY, Earlier, Related]
