Ian Schrager Launches New Boutique Brand

From ChicagoMag.com:
Chicago’s Ambassador East is First in Chain
No one knew exactly what to expect when Ian Schrager bought the Ambassador East hotel (1301 N. State Pkwy.), home of The Pump Room, the most famous restaurant in the city for decades. Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall celebrated their wedding at the bastion of luxury, and it was a filming location for North by Northwest. Dish got a look at the official release on the project. The hotel will be called Public, and it will emphasize service over extravagance. The restaurant will still be called The Pump Room, and, confirming the unconfirmed rumors Dish had been hearing since mid-April, the food will be created by the superstar chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten.
