This could be fun. Nice scoop from eaterla
On a vaguely related note, had it been reported here that Melisse was shutting down for a full revamp?
I believe so. Citrin is planning to do something like Sugarfish/Nozawar Bar and Bazaar/Somni where the restaurant will have a casual front and a “secret” fine-dining back counter/area of some sort.
I am a big fan, but Melisse needed a re vamp. He’s doing good things at Charcoal in Venice. Very curious how Dear John’s will turn out -could be fun. They have nothing to lose the restaurant already has it’s closing date.
Since like 2015.
as much as I liked the food and excellent service the space looked like the set of a soap opera.
