Todd Stein is finally ready to get back to the kitchen, as The Florentine is set to open in the new JW Marriott on Thursday. Back in August, Stein suddenly left the acclaimed Cibo Matto for this new project, but he has had to wait while the hotel finished construction. We’ll have a full report on the space and the menu tomorrow, but Stein claimed that the new space would be “more rustic, but still comfortable and hip.” [Thrillist]
