Help needed - my friends have been so impressed w/ all my west coast Chowhound research - they're going to NYC this weekend & want to know what restaurants he is involved in (other than Nobu, which would be where I would go...) TIA.

    Isn't he part owner of Bubba's? That's not italian though, more southern and comfort food.

        Tribeca Grill isn't Italian. It claims to have Mediterrenean influences, but I'd call it standard late 20th century New York-American boring upscale fare....if that's fair.

      Italian -- surely you don't mean Zeppole? It opened in 1996 and closed in 1997 or 1998. It was the first of the Myriad Restaurant Group places to close.

      Actually, I think he IS a partner in a non-Myriad Italian place, but I can't remember the name. Try a Google search.
