Jazziz Bistro, the swank supper club in the Seminole Hard Rock and sister "venue" to Jazziz magazine, closed in April of this year. Since then, the site has remained empty, with a lot of speculation as to what is going in there. Now the rumor mill is brewing, and some are saying celebrity chef Todd English will be the one to move into the spot with a brand new restaurant. At least, that would explain his number of recent appearances around South Florida.
Spokesperson for the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Ryan Rogers said there are some plans for the space, vacant now for over five months, but could not confirm or deny English's involvement. "We are having conversations with a lot of people as to what's going in there," said Rogers. "It will definitely be something high-end, but nothing is determined yet.
English, a veteran chef with over two-dozen eateries in his empire, currently operates two other restaurants in South Florida, da Campo Osteria in the il Lugano Hotel and Figs at Macy's in the Gardens Mall. Stay tuned to Clean Plate Charlie for further details.
