The Dining Room Closes, Re-Opens Tomorrow As "Pop-Up at Vesper"
The Dining Room moves from quaint (above) to corporate.
The Dining Room closed its petite South Beach venue last week and has decided to move in with relatives until it finds a place of its own. Sort of. Vesper Brasserie in the Shelbourne Hotel will be giving its space up to The Dining Room, which starting tomorrow evening will become "The Dining Room Pop-Up at Vesper Brasserie."
Maria Lieberman of The Dining Room chalked up the move to the need for a "bigger location," but there's another new angle to the new locale: The Dining Room now gets a full liquor license and outdoor terrace space.
The Dining Room co-owners Brian Lieberman and Keith Menin will see how the pop-up progresses, and then "reevaluate" things at the end of summer.
The Dining Room Pop-Up at Vesper Brasserie's hours are dinner Tuesday through Sunday, 6 p.m. to midnight.
