When exactly Gabriel Kreuther is leaving Modern?

Not a news. Just want to know when so I can make a last dinner at Modern prior to his departure. Most report just said "later this year" or "end of year". Thanks!

  1. If what you want is a "Kreuther experience" I'm no sure I would be all that worried because he is going to be opening up his own shop sometime next year.

      Yeah, I got your point. But I do enjoy the paintings and the sculpture garden while dining there tho. It is part of the experiences.

        Perhaps call and ask? It's possible he hasn't set a firm departure date.

        Of course, who knows how long that will take...

            That makes me wonder is it all these, just a marketing scheme - to build up the expectation and create buzz. Think big block buster promotions.

              i just read that Ivan is opening in the Hell's Kitchen Market, something like Chelsea Market on 11th Ave. Could be open in a few weeks.

                so it will be in the open air like the food vendor at Smorgasbord? Cuz HK Market is outdoor. Plus most vendor, per my memory, are selling vintage stuff like old furniture. Did not notice any food vendor there.
