J.P. Challet to take over at the Windsor Arms
We hear that George Friedmann of the Windsor Arms has asked local legend J.P. Challet and his team to take over the Yorkville hotel’s food and beverage service, including a reinvention and possible renaming of its main restaurant Prime. No dates have been confirmed for the takeover, and questions remain about the future of Challet’s most recent project, Ici Bistro (but it appears that recent plumbing problems might keep the Harbord Street hot-spot-that-never-was closed for the time being). Check back next week for full details.
