Garces Headed for Palm Springs?
Okay, so remember a couple months ago when we reported that Iron Chef and serial Philly-restaurant-opener Jose Garces was expanding outside of his comfort zone with a brace of (multiple concept) projects in Arizona and Atlantic City? Well, it seems that JG just won’t be happy until his empire stretches from sea to shining sea because we’re now hearing from both Eater and Grub Street L.A. that he’s added another city to his tour schedule and will likely be bringing a concept to Palm Springs.
This is what the Left Coast Grub Streeters had to say:
Seeing as Garces just opened versions of his Distrito and Jose Garces Trading Company at Arizona’s Drinkwater Hotel, owned by the Sydell Group, owners of Palm Spring’s popular Ace Hotel, we’d venture to guess he could be doing something similar for Sydell in the Southern California desert.
There isn’t much in the way of details yet, but you’ll know more when we do.
