I was out at the Midtown Global Market (mmmm, huaraches) when I spied a new sign:
It's displayed in the vacant sit-down restaurant space on the north side of the market. After a little digging I found out that Well Seasoned will be opened by Nick Miller, former partner in Happy Gnome and current co-owner of Buster's on 28th and The Hanger Room in Willernie. The new spot will be a beer-influenced American bistro with the kitchen run by former Buster's chef, Evan Connolly.
While there's not that much going on in the space right now, I was told that the planned opening was aimed for February. Is a beer bar going to be the ticket to drive people down to MGM in the evening? The place is jam packed during the day, but nights can get a little crickety.
Given the past news of Miller's situation with the struggling Hanger Room, I'll leave this with stay tuned....
