Straight from the horse's mouth: the long dry spell is over! Ali will be back in the kitchen starting tomorrow. (I think the super-auspicious date is a coincidence?)
He has done some major revamping of his kitchen, due to perpetual hassle from the fire-code people, so expect some new stuff on the menu.
If I weren't going to a wedding, I would be the first person through the doors. Hopefully _some_ people tomorrow are free of wedding obligations and can check it out and report back?
