Correction: Tyler Florence and Kimpton talking, but NOT about Grand Cafe and Scala's

In a Business Times Web update linked to previously from Covers, I wrote that San Francisco boutique hotel chain Kimpton was talking to TV chef Tyler Florence about possibly cooking at the Grand Cafe and Scala's.

As some of you may have guessed, if a chef like Tyler Florence is going to open a restaurant, it is is generally going to be under his own name. Florence did NOT talk to Kimpton about operating Grand Cafe or Scala's, he talked about a variety of opportunities for collaboration, whether at a national level or in one of Kimpton's new hotels.

There are no immediate plans. A Kimpton spokesman told me the door is open to working together going forward.

I have not changed my original Covers post, since it did not include any of the incorrect information, but we have corrected the original Business Times Web article:

Correction: THIRD Out the Door in Pacific Heights

In yesterday's item on Charles Phan starting construction on his third Out the Door in Pacific Heights, I said it was the second Out the Door.

In reality, it's the third: One next door to the original Slanted Door in the Ferry Building, one in Westfield SF Centre and the new one. I forgot about the original because somehow in my espresso-addled brain it's just part of Slanted Door.

Rumor has it: Chris Nolan stopped gossiping

A little birdie -- OK, it's Chris Nolan -- tells me Chris Nolan has not written a gossip column for five years, at least not for a salary. And yet I erroneously called her a gossip columnist in my Oct. 11 post on the Chow.com launch.

These days she writes and rides heard over the 9 other contributors at her Spot-On.com, a site for political and social commentary. (Tip: Look for fresh posts down the right side of the front page.)

As for tech gossip, well, I'm not sure where to point you. I kind of a lot miss Chris. I guess there's always Steve Jobs' blog.
