Chef Michael White's newest restaurant to be named Ai Fiori

Seeems like there's a lot of development going on around my hood. The newest tidbit of information is that Michael White and Chris Cannon are set to open a new joint in the currently under construction Setai Fifth Avenue hotel.

Via NYTimes:


Michael White, the chef and partner in Convivio, Alto and Marea, who is also in the throes of trying to open Osteria Morini, his new place on Lafayette Street, has piled even more on his plate. Working with Chris Cannon and his other partners in the Alta Marea restaurant group, he will be executive chef at Ai Fiori, the second-floor restaurant in the Setai Fifth Avenue, 400 Fifth Avenue (37th Street), set to open in late fall. The restaurant will feature the food of the Italian Mediterranean coast, with some French Riviera influences, and have about 185 seats with another 40 at the bar. Though the hotel shares its name with the Setai Wall Street, which also has a second-floor restaurant (SHO Shaun Hergatt), each is owned by a different company.
