Good news for folks who were concerned about the fate of the ~BIG 4~ restaurant at the Huntington Hotel: it will be coming back. The new owners, Singapore-based hospitality group Grace International, have brought on the local Puccini Group to consult on and oversee the renovation, design, restaurant concept, and management services of the Big 4. Some changes will include fresh carpet, paint, upholstery, and the tables will no longer have tablecloths. Fortunately the bar will be kept as is, ditto the live piano. Scoop added the news that chef Gloria Ciccarone-Nehls will also remain. The Big 4 will close for renovations on January 1st, 2014, and reopen in spring 2014.
