the-lion-restaurant-nyc-14.jpgRemember those stories we all heard about The Raleigh hiring a celebrity chef to helm its kitchen? Now we're hearing that a pop up outpost of NYC's The Lion, the brainchild of Waverly Inn's chef/partner John DeLucie, may open at the hotel for the season. Said Vanity Fair of The Lion: "“The menu derives from DeLucie’s expertise in simple, wonderful unhip American specialties?that have made his work such a hit.” Rumor #2 involves a hot, young Latin chef who recently won a high profile television food competition. Said chef is said to be on the hiring block to star in the kitchen at the newly revamped Shelborne with a progressive Latin menu sometime in late December. Stay tuned. [EaterWire]
