By the third or fourth week in September, Whiskey Bar boys Corey Sylvester, Cory Schwab, Rich Johnson and Joe Ruzicka plan to unveil the Lobby American Grill. According to Charley Sinden, who's been tapped as the grill's executive chef (Sinden is the former exec chef at the now defunct nine75), the menu's going to be "American food with Midwest and Southern influences," and nothing will be more than $16. "Our tagline is 'good food for people in jeans,'" he says.
As for the two-tiered room that swallowed Buenos Aires, they're not doing a whole lot to change it. "It's a great space, so we're just giving it a facelift," Sylvester says. But judging from the above pic, Joan Rivers would approve.
