Yesterday, José Andrés backed out of his deal to open a flagship restaurant in Donald Trump’s D.C. hotel — a very wise move. Now news hits that he’s bringing the Bazaar (his restaurant with locations in Beverly Hills, South Beach, and Las Vegas) to another hotel, the forthcoming SLS New York at 444 Park Avenue South. This will be Andrés’s first-ever New York concept, and the Philippe Starck-designed hotel is scheduled to open in the summer of 2016.
