Hot Tub Time Machine: Where’s That Big Name Chef At The Raleigh?

by Ryan @ MRPR on September 4, 2010

It’s always fun to announce the opening of a new restaurant, especially where there’s some big name chef coming to town.  For example: here.  But it’s even more fun to look back through the archives at those promises of new restaurants and other gastro-gossip to see what never panned out.

Back in December of 2009, Eater Miami reported that, over at The Raleigh hotel on South Beach, “[r]umors of a major NYC restaurant and/or restaurant operator moving into the Raleigh are true.”  In fact, the director of marketing could barely contain himself: “The rumors are true but I cannot disclose the name yet. [I am] truly excited about this venture, I can tell you that!”

Ten months later and still no major NYC restaurant at The Raleigh.  Oops.
