SFoodie was the first to note Charlie Palmer seemed to be working on a project at the ~CRESCENT HOTEL~. Inside Scoop got confirmation that he is in fact working with the developer City-Core to open a “chef-driven boutique hotel.” Palmer will be opening a brand-new restaurant concept in the hotel, and fans of The Burritt Room will be happy to know the historic bar will remain open. Renovations are scheduled to begin in 2012. 417 Stockton St. at Bush, 415-400-0500.
