Over in New York it’s becoming quite the game to predict where Nate Appleman will land. We noted last week that the smart money is on the second location of Motorino, but yesterday Eater NY threw out some more suggestions. Among them: Drew Nieporent’s currently dark Mai House. It would be pretty interesting to have the former high-profile San Francisco restaurateur teaming up with a former high-profile San Francisco chef, especially on something currently so different from Appleman’s style as Mai House. Meanwhile, back at home, 7x7 reported that Tyler Florence plans an “American Balthazar” in the old Rubicon space that has been empty since Nieporent closed that restaurant last year.
