Perhaps the reason Todd English's newest restaurant, Ça Va, got such a poor review in the New York Times this week is because the celebrity chef is spending his artistic efforts outside the kitchen.
He fronted a band a few nights ago at The Bitter End, a nightclub in Greenwich Village. The band has played in public a few times, but English has been very low key about his fledgling music career. Asked for information about upcoming appearances or whether there is an album in the works, his spokesperson said she had no comment. At the gig, the audience appeared to enjoy the music, bobbing their heads with the beat.
