Despite earlier reports of November 1, the John Dory is, according to its answering machine, “opening soon,” with reservations accepted starting tomorrow. Per last Friday’s posts to the restaurant’s blog, it's “getting there,” and photos show that the 900-gallon fish tank has been installed, along with a bartop of fake fish. Meanwhile, there’s news from the Ace Hotel: It turns out that not only are Ken Friedman and April Bloomfield doing the room-service menu (which will be available 24 hours), but there will be an in-house restaurant when the hotel opens this winter. Amid all this preparation, Bloomfield was cooking with Fergus Henderson this weekend — New York Journal has a review of that experience: “Fat, indeed, was the order of the day.”
