Esca chef Dave Pasternack is reportedly teaming up with LDV Hospitality (that owns Scarpetta, among other restaurants) to open an Italian-accented seafood spot on West 23rd Street. The restaurant will open this coming spring. Esca, 402 W. 43rd St., New York, NY 10036, 212-564-7272.
Daniel Boulud is heading to Boston. The French chef is taking over Asana, the restaurant housed in the Mandarin Oriental, Boston. Boulud Sud's opening chef, Aaron Chambers, will be running the kitchen. Mandarin Oriental, Boston, 776 Boylston St., Boston, MA 02199, 617-535-8880.
Egg, the popular all-day brunch spot in Williamsburg, is moving. At the end of February, the restaurant will relocate about two blocks to the space vacated by two-year-old Parish Hall (109 N. 3rd St.). Until that time, Egg will remain open at its original address. The new space is bigger, which will help alleviate the lines of hungry hipsters. Egg, 135 N. 5th St., Brooklyn, NY 11211, 718-302-5151.
Pastis, the achingly scene-y Meatpacking District restaurant, will close after February 28, 2014. The building that houses the bistro is being renovated. Owner Keith McNally has signed a 15-year lease on the space, so Pastis lovers should have no fear: the restaurant will reopen in 2015 and be around for a while after that. Pastis, 9 Ninth Ave., New York, NY 10014, 212-929-4844.
Tertulia, the still-ever-hip and popular Spanish spot in the West Village, has had a no-reservations policy since it opened nearly two and a half years ago. But all that's changed recently and reservations are now accepted. However, be warned: reservations are limited as the restaurant prefers holding tables for walk-ins. Tertulia, 359 Sixth Ave., New York, NY 10014, 646-559-9909.
The James Beard Foundation has announced that Sirio Maccioni, the restaurateur behind Le Cirque, will receive the 2014 James Beard Foundation Lifetime Achievement Award at the James Beard Foundation Awards on May 5, 2014. Following the ceremony at Lincoln Center, Maccioni will also be honored at a VIP event featuring food prepared by chefs from his three New York City restaurants: Le Cirque, Circo and Sirio Ristorante. Maccioni was previously named Best Restaurateur in the U.S. (2008) in GAYOT’s Annual Restaurant Issue. Le Cirque, One Beacon Court, 151 E. 58th St., New York, NY 10022, 212-644-0202.
News has just broken that chef, author and TV food/travel personality Anthony Bourdain is working on bringing a massive international food hall/market to Manhattan. There's no word yet on the location, but Bourdain has said he wants to bring his favorite street food from around the world --- think Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Spain, Hong Kong --- and put them all in one spot.
El Sombrero, the longtime Lower East Side Mexican restaurant, was set to close due to a lease issue. But the eatery has a new lease on life. At least for a while. The restaurant may still have to shut down in 2014. Stay tuned. El Sombrero, 108 Stanton St., New York, NY 10002, 212-254-4188.
Restaurateur Joseph Santo has passed away at 84, after complications from heart surgery. Santo owned several restaurants on the Upper East Side. The most popular was Sign of the Dove, which was open for decades but shut down in 1998.
