Is there a Rae of hope for Garces?


"Iron Chef" contestant Jose Garces sat today with The Inquirer's Craig LaBan for a chat.

Among the topics: That he's hot to do a sausage-and-beer concept as well as something based on "farm to table."

Garces confirmed to me that he is in lease negotiations at the Cira Centre, across from 30th Street Station, that last housed Daniel Stern's Rae.

The concept would be "farm to table" with a "healthful but flavorful" bent.

Can Garces succeed where Stern didn't?
