Three of the nation’s marquee chefs direct new productions:

Rocco DiSpirito, of Union Pacific fame, steps in to update Tuscan Steak in New York, dropping the meat-centric name for the simplicity of TUSCAN and rustic Italian cuisine. The airy design by Jeffrey Beers remains. (212) 352-2020

Daniel Boulud branches out from New York to open café BOULUD PALM BEACH in the Florida city’s Brazilian Court Hotel. The sunny spot, less formal than the chef’s Daniel, serves seasonal French modeled on his Manhattan offshoot Café Boulud. (561) 655-7740

After leaving his Star Canyon empire, Texas celeb chef Stephan Pyles is back, this time at DRAGONFLY in Dallas’ Hotel ZaZa, where he merges Asian and Mediterranean fare in an energetic, world-music-piped room. (214) 468-8399
