Grub got its hands on some more details about the place Dale Talde and his Talde partners are planning for the old Aunt Suzie’s space on Fifth Avenue, and there’s nary a pretzel dumpling on the horizon. “It’s going to be real, real, real casual place,” Talde said. “The place I’ve always wanted to go [after work], to shoot a few rounds of pool, watch Sports Center.” The toque and partners John Bush and David Massoni plan to offer pitchers of beer, “cheap whiskey,” and “really chill bar food” till 2 a.m., seven days a week. And this one won’t lean Asian: “At the end of the day, I’m just an American chef,” Talde said. Also, there will be a Patrick-Swayze-in-Roadhouse feel (think: chicken wire), and the place is going to be “very mullet-friendly,” so if you’re angling for a job, better start growing that party in the back, stat. Talde was coy about his menu and the opening date, but he did mention, “we don’t want to miss the blue crab for the summer.”
