We didn’t want to sound any alarm bells when Tailor’s telephone line was disconnected for a short spell a week ago (issues with the phone company were sorted out no sooner than an hour after we noticed), but now there’s officially bad news. The restaurant has sent word that it’s closing its dining room during the summer: “While the Tailor Bar will remain open complete with an extended bar food menu, the Tailor Dining Room will be closed to the general public for July and August. During this period Sam Mason and his crew will focus on reorganizing and designing a new and exciting menu for the late summer/early fall. The dining room will be hosting private dinners and events during the month of July but will be closed for the month of August while they revamp.” Truly a shame, but if there’s a silver lining to this, it’s that one of the very best bar programs in the city remains operational. We implore you to keep it alive via $8 cedar bourbon shots.
