A local dog walker blogged this week that he had spoken to one of the Brookfield Place restaurant owners and was given a “bombshell” exclusive that famed restaurateur Jean-Georges Vongerichten was opening a fine dining establishment in Brookfield Place. The same source has also repeatedly propagated unfounded rumors about Leonardo di Caprio buying apartments in Tribeca, Lindsay Lohan starting a restaurateur in Tribeca, etc., so we were skeptical.
We called Jean-George’s personal assistant (imagine that, actually calling the company for a comment, what a novel idea), and were told, “We have been approached, but that rumor is untrue…..nothing is signed….we have many restaurants now.”.
