Eric Ripert's Future Restaurant Named West End

Metrocurean just received word that the deal for chef Eric Ripert's new bistro in the Ritz-Carlton at 22nd and M streets was finally, officially signed Monday. The restaurant will be called West End. Stay tuned for more details.

A year ago, news surfaced that Ripert, the renowned chef of Manhattan's Le Bernardin, was planning to open a restaurant in the Ritz. In following months, however, it never became publicly clear whether the deal was a sure bet.

Ripert will add West End to a portfolio that also includes Periwinkle and Blue in the Ritz Grand Cayman.
