Tanner, the chef and restaurateur who co-founded the original Pies ‘n’ Thighs and achieved subsequent heights of fried-chicken greatness at the Commodore is working on a new one called El Dorado. The bi-level space, set to open later this year at Ingraham and Bogart streets, will also have a rooftop bar, our friends at Bedford + Bowery report, and will be decked out in what designer Joe Foglia describes as a “’50s-to-’70s California motel aesthetic.” [Bedford + Bowery]
