We happen to be fans of BLT’s particular style of food—that’s a BLT Burger at The Betsy’s BLT Steak in the photo above—so the potential loss of yet another New York outpost could have been sad. But no! Starwood to the rescue!
The folks at Eater are following the community board meetings that green light hotel constructions and the establishments within, and they report that the in-the-works BLT Grill at the W New York Downtown now has its liquor license.
The restaurant will have two floors and a small patio for 20, and will close no later than 11:30 p.m. on the weekends. (In a case of classic Trump-upmanship, Trump SoHo’s BLT replacement, Quattro, will span three levels.)
Meanwhile, yet another BLT Steak just opened in the new Ritz-Carlton Charlotte. Laurent is on fire! What’s next, a BLT Hotel?
