West 57th Street is poised for three new hotels with about 650 luxury rooms, and all three will have high-profile restaurants that are expected to increase foot traffic to the block between Sixth and Seventh avenues.

The 208-room Quin, located on the former Buckingham site at the northwest corner of Sixth Avenue, is slated for an October opening. The 240-room Viceroy at 120 West 57th Street will follow a few days later. And the 210-room Park Hyatt, part of Extell Development’s One57 condominium tower, will open in 2014.

The Quin will open the Wayfarer, a ground-floor corner restaurant with ESquared’s Jimmy Haber at the helm, while Gerber Group and Landmarc chef Marc Murphy will open Kingside at the Viceroy, the New York Post reported.

The Post did not have details about the restaurant at the Park Hyatt. [NYP, 3rd item]  – Hiten Samtani
