I am excited about the prospects that a new restaurant MAY be opening on the corner of W71 and Columbus. Penang is moving from that huge location to the former location of Eden Wok on W72 bet. Columbus and Amsterdam. Anyone know if a new restaurant is taking over that huge location .... or will it be a BANK!?!?!?! [big sigh]. Perhaps the space has not even been rented yet.
Additionally, a "French restaurant" or wine bar is scheduled to open near the Scott J. Salon on W72 and Columbus. They have been renovating the space for weeks; however, it's unclear exactly what is scheduled to move in. It's clear that the restaurant will have a bar.
