Rumors Of Things That Are No Longer Happening: Morimoto Wants To Open Small Ko-esque Counter Restaurant


But not in Philadelphia.

In New York.

Apparently, the small, lunch-counter-like restaurants are all the rage right now.

From Down By The Hipster:
A [source reveals] that Morimoto, Mr. Iron Chef, was looking into opening a more casual lunch space in the Chelsea Market building in the Meatpacking District, but that the plans have been put on hold because of economic pressures.
Perhaps the ex-baseball player is looking to emulate the David Chang by going smaller and letting his immense creativity run wild.
