The name is Amuse, and there's a strong chance that breakfasts will be designed by Jean-Georges Vongerichten.

More details on Le Meridien's restaurant

In bits and pieces, details about the dining offered at Center City's next two hotels is dribbling out.

Le Méridien, under construction at 1421 Arch St. (across from the Municipal Services Building, and a block from what will be the new expansion of the Pennsylvania Convention Center), has targeted Oct. 15 as the opening date of its restaurant, Amuse. 

Though the concept will bar/brasserie, Amuse will be pronounced the American way.

There's a strong chance that Amuse will serve a signature breakfast (including Illycafe coffee) designed by Jean-Georges Vongerichten, who consults for Le Meridien parent company Starwood.
