Last week, rumors spread that Top Chef alum Jennifer Carroll was eying restaurant spaces in either Washington DC or New York City, after her plans for a hometown spot Concrete Blonde were unfortunately put on hold. Looks like New York may be the winner. Today Eater NY spots Carroll's name on the agenda of a downtown Manhattan community board, applying for a liquor license for a space on 33 Greenwich Street in the West Village. One needn't sign a lease to appear before the community board, so she may be testing the waters. But this is a pretty clear sign of her intentions.
UPDATE: Jen Carroll rang up Eater Philly, confirming that it's her name on the sign, but could not confirm that she's doing Concrete Blonde in NYC. Stay tuned.
