Hudson Yards on Manhattan’s West Side is slated for completion in 2018.

Thomas Keller will open a “classic American” restaurant in Hudson Yards, the sprawling project currently under construction on Manhattan’s West Side, the chef confirmed to The New York Times.

Keller and restaurateur Kenneth A. Himmel will also be responsible for the selection of 11 other restaurants that will join the project.

The chef, whose California flagship The French Laundry is currently undergoing major renovations, is also attached to Seabourn, the luxury cruise line for which he will develop a signature restaurant.

“We’re assembling a dynamic group, at different price points with ethnic diversity,” Keller told The New York Times. “American, French, Greek, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Italian, you name it.”

Upon its scheduled completion in 2018, Hudson Yards will have one million square feet of restaurant and retail space. A number of the chefs, both domestic and abroad, have been selected for inclusion, but they remain unnamed.
