Tyler Florence to Open Restaurant in San Francisco

For the first time in 10 years, celebrity chef Tyler Florence is heading back to the restaurant business. With a scheduled opening for Summer of this year, Florence's first signature restaurant will be located at the new Hotel Vertigo (currently the York Hotel) in San Francisco. Florence believes Northern California is a foodie wonderland and is excited to work on the project. He states:

Having recently moved to the Bay Area from New York City, I wake up every day in awe of this true culinary utopia. I look forward to being a part of it, and bringing something very special to the City of San Francisco.

Star of three Food Network shows and People magazine's Sexiest Chef Alive, Florence's last endeavor in the restaurant industry was as executive chef at Manhattan's Cafeteria. I'm curious to see what this chef will cook up, how about you?

another Food Network pretty boy I would rate with Rachael Ray. Micheal Bauer will have some good dirt on this doooooosh I agree with Andrew Zimerman, one of tv's most untalented chef.

Okay, so his choice to stump for Applebee's wasn't the best career move. But I'd eat anything he makes on Tyler's Ultimate. He's funny, HOT, a good cook...everything I want in a man!! I've been planning a trip to San Fran this summer so this is perfect timing!!

i love tyler. he's really making a name for himself - in a good way. first doing that show w/ shaq about healthy eating in the schools and now his additions to the menu at applebees for healthier choices - he's a mover and a shaker....

Good point lexichloe! Any there isn't a Applebees anywhere in SF - so maybe his place will be a mini Applebee's. We should start a blog - Countdown to Destruction: Tyler vs Gary Danko & Fifth Floor & Jardinere. Or something more catchy. He's in for a world of hurt once Micheal Bauer gets a hold of him. But the tourist may keep him alive like they do Bubba Gumps and Rainforest Cafe.

I have a hard time taking him seriously since he attached his name to Applebee's (one of the WORST restaurants currently). I hope he does well, b/c I like him, but Applebee's???? Come on, Tyler!!!
