Roy Choi Lending a Hand to The Line Hotel

The Line

Reps for Roy Choi confirm Eater's report that the Kogi and Chego chef is indeed collaborating with The Sydell Group (of New York's Nomad Hotel) on a new restaurant in what will eventually be The Line Hotel, opening in 2013 on Wilshire. According to the site, the hotel will "celebrate-through food, drink, and design - all that Korea Town has to offer." Hopefully that means more than just a tank full of Hite and a belly full of galbi jiim, since we know Daniel Humm's truly epic foie-stuffed roast chicken won't be making it from The Nomad anytime too soon.
