He's also gearing up to open a new restaurant — and this one is going to be a bit different from the others in his empire. That's because it will be his first restaurant not located within a big urban area: The new eatery, known as Small Batch, is set to open next month in Garden City, New York.
The concept focuses on locally sourced and seasonal ingredients in rustic American fare with an approachable feel. "The culinary and beverage teams will work closely with members of the Long Island community to celebrate the world class products coming from local farms, fisheries, vineyards and more throughout their offerings," according to the website.
The 180-seat restaurant will have a farmhouse-inspired vibe with an open and interactive kitchen and wood-fired grill — all meant to bring the chef action into the dining room.
Tom also just announced a partnership in an affordable, chef-quality cookware line... and he's using it in all his restaurants.
