Latest Table Talk column from Michael Klein is about new Jose Garces resturant Chifa.
I think Garces is trying to takeover the city as soon as possible. I've been to Tinto and Distrito and recommend both. I will say that I think you can find better places at a cheaper price, but you pay to be at the hip place with the hot chef.
I am worried that he is overextending himself. The locations are spread out so might be ok. He is good for all us resturant lovers and its good food and cool atmosphere.
