Despite the whispers of a possible sale, the Dream Downtown remains a hot place to be. Why just the other night, Kanye West was at the hotel's PH-D nightclub where he unleashed some previously unreleased tunes (so says Page Six.)

Now comes word that the hotel's shuttered Romera restaurant downstairs will be replaced with a BondSt sushi spot. Word is BondSt partner Jonathan Morr is teaming up with Republic and Studio Gaia to redesign the spot.

Well, we guess that answers our question about the sayings from neuroscientist-turned-chef Miguel Romera that were etched into the bathrooms and staircases, like "I am a doctor who cooks, and not a cook who doctors food."

Once the redesign's complete, the restaurant will then serve up its signature tasty version of Japanese fare which includes not only sushi and sashimi but also entrees such as the kabocha "gnocchi", squid ink pasta and a New York strip steak.
