CityZen's renowned longtime chef Eric Ziebold will open his own restaurant. Washington Business Journal reports the chef has signed a lease for a project at 1015 Seventh St. NW, according to the owner of the building.
There were no specifics revealed about what sort of restaurant it will be. Meanwhile, the Mandarin Oriental hotel, which houses CityZen, opened a new restaurant late last year called Muze to replace its more casual restaurant, Sou'Wester.
"Mandarin Oriental does not comment on market rumor or speculation," a rep for the hotel told Eater.
