No. We're talking about what used to be the hottest lesbian dance club in town, Tootsie's. It sold last year sometime, and is now known as 1822 UltraLounge/Mercurey Kitchen/Otto's Malt Shop.

In other news, has anyone been brave enough to visit the Ultra Lounge which allegedly, according to the used car lot flags outside, sells Otto's stuff? I have walked or driven by it a few times over the last few weeks, and the identity crisis that is this place has been on full display each time.
It's sounding like no one's ever heard any further news about Otto opening his own joint in Midtown as was originally promised? There was some chatter at one point that he was moving into the former Corner Restaurant space on Westport Road but there's not been an inch of movement there in several months.

He/They are operating in a booth at Cowtown Mallroom last I heard.

Any idea what's going on with this spot? This sign appears to be new since Streetview last visited the area in April, but the recent graffiti would indicate it's probably not being too actively worked on... and the food definitely does not sound like a winning combo.

I actually ran into someone who knows the folks doing this project (wish I had asked a lot more questions). It was a quick conversation, but they described it as Korean BBQ to me, and there is a space in the back they were playing around with making into a cocktail area. I'm not sure if it is going to be Yakiniku (Japanese style BBQ) or true Korean BBQ. If I recall correctly, I believe the people involved are also involved in Domo in Brookside (it was a non-Korean-style restaurant at least), so the sushi may not be as much of an afterthought as it appears.

BBQ sushi is all the rage on the coasts. And in Moscow, so I hear they may start serving it at Monarch.
