Boston's O Ya May be Getting a New York Outpost
According to a new report from Eater, New Yorkers will soon be getting a taste of one of Boston’s most beloved dining spots. Apparently, restaurateurs Tim and Nancy Cushman, owners of the James Beard Award-winning new-Japanese restaurant O Ya, will be opening a second O Ya outpost in Gramercy’s Park South Hotel, and another restaurant as well. There’s also word that the new location will get bar assistance from Ted Kilpatrik, formerly of Boston favorite No. 9 Park.
Tim and Nancy Cushman opened O Ya to wide accolades in 2007, including a notice by the New York Times as America’s #1 New Restaurant in 2008. Last week, The Daily Meal named O Ya the second best Asian restaurant in America.
Park South Hotel is located in Midtown Manhattan near the Empire State Building, and currently features the Black Duck Bar. According to Park South Hotel’s website, Black Duck Bar will be replaced by “an intimate rooftop bar,” following the hotel’s “sleek re-fashioning of guest rooms and restaurant/bar facilities” over the next few months.
