David Chang x Shangri La ... here's hoping!
This morning on the rumour-mill:
@Urban_Toronto: Shangri-La lands David Chang as chef. http://bit.ly/dTfM6h
@coreymintz we all get on phone with Shangri La PR today. No confirmation of David Chang rumour until Monday
Trying... to temper.. excitement... Mind, the hotel doesn't open until Q2 2012, so we have a year (more likely) to go. But... Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!
@davidchang @bleszcz > chris bosh south beach sucks...hello southern ontario > Phaneuf, Bargnani & Bautista > late late 2012ish? via westbank>shangri-la
Solidifying that rumour!
http://www.foodpr0n.com/ -- food. is. love.
it would be really interesting if he made it over the border, but i'm having a hard time imagining it considering he hasn't gone cross country yet and that would be a bigger benefit to his promotion of the local tasty as well as increasing vegetables into our diet and reducing meat. that being said, his operations and i agree that santa barbara uni is delicious enough to drag across the country.
his milk bar operation is much more replicable.
Is there a corporate connection between the Shangri-La and the Chambers Hotel in NY where Ma Peche is located? That would put a little more credence to the rumour.
