Since there’s not much new news in the way of restaurant openings and closings to report this week, we’re going to structure this week’s edition of The Tuesday Report a little differently. We’re going to take a look at the current status of a few of the restaurants we’ve reported on that haven’t yet opened. Let’s jump right in.
•Way back on March 22, we mentioned Oliver’s, Todd English’s rumored burger joint in Post Office Square, originally expected to open in Fall 2007. At this point, we suspect it’s safe to declare this one dead.
•Banq, which we originally mentioned back on September 11, is slated to open next week! There’s lots of buzz on this one, so we’re excited to see how it turns out.
•Johnnie’s on the Side, which we initially discussed on September 18, was mentioned in the Herald last month. The article states that the restaurant will open by the end of the month. To the best of our knowledge (which is limited, as we cannot track down a phone number), it has not yet opened.
•Persephone, part of the Achilles Project we talked about on October 2, is set to open on Monday! The menu includes jamón ibérico and looks excellent all around.
