No big deal.
Jose has plans for a beer and brats spot.
Stephen makes plans for a full-on beer garden.
We're going to go ahead and surmise that Starr probably found his inspiration for this project at the Standard Hotel Biergarten, which opened this summer to immediate crowds in the Meatpacking District literally around the corner from his NYC Morimoto and Buddakan outposts.
Meanwhile, the last we hear, Garces still does not have a finalized lease for the Letto Deli location, at which he wants to do the aforementioned beer and brats. Hopefully, he can close on that soon.
