A tablehopper tipster let me know Tyler Florence reportedly has a project brewing at the ~HOTEL REX~, a Joie de Vivre Hospitality hotel in Union Square known for its comfy Library Bar and bohemian style. I checked in with Tyler, who said he wasn’t ready to release any details yet, but that they are in the final planning phase and it’s going to be “very cool.” The Library Bar currently has a menu of salads, sandwiches, and more, and there’s the currently closed Café Andrée space in the front of the hotel, so we will all have to just stand by and see what surprise TyFlo has up his chef’s coat sleeve for the place. 562 Sutter St. at Mason, 415-433-4434.
