...And For Those Who May Have Blinked
Two of our favorites, Sheba Ethiopian restaurant in the Design District, and Le Bon on Lincoln Road, called it quits last week. Prime Italian, from the Prime One Twelve folks, opened its' doors across the street from its' sister steakhouse. Barton G secured the concessions at the Adrienne Arscht Center For The Performing Arts, and will be debuting two restaurants there later this year. As inventive as Barton G. Weiss can be, he's going to have to work awfully hard to top this:
Chef/owner Craig Carlino's Hot Tuna, an Asian-fusion "theatrical
restaurant experience", opened earlier this week at 764 Washington
Avenue. Here is the description: "Every 90 minutes, a large projection
screen will display a water-color painting that comes to life and
signals the show to start with the strike of a gong. The screen then
disappears into the ceiling, revealing a 'runway' on the bar which
professionally trained servers will use as a platform to perform
choreographed three-minute dance numbers to popular rock 'n' roll
tunes, including hits by Def Leppard, AC/DC and Bon Jovi." And,
presumably, by Jack Cassady and Jorma Kaukonen (First Pull Up, Then
Pull Down being one of the all-time great blues/rock albums) -- or does
Hot Tuna refer to a menu item? We don't have any photos of the cuisine,
but we can leave you with a shot of the "Hot Tuna Girls":
