Try to wrap your head around this. A Little Birdy tells 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. We are giddy with the possibilities of Morimoto expanding beyond his high end Japanese restaurant, which along with Nobu, Masa etc. has become, dare we say, tired. Perhaps the ex-baseball player is looking to emulate the David Chang by going smaller and letting his immense creativity run wild. Alas, we will have to wait and see (and hope) if this project can come together.
