Another reason I haven't been posting is because I have had to deal with all sorts of roadblocks: bureaucratic red-tape, stalled building renovations, and litigation issues... Out of my better judgement, I thought it would be wise not to post during this unsettling period.
Anyway, it looks like my family and I have weathered the worst of this storm. I just wanted people to know that we are still here! We will open - hopefully soon. Next time I post, it will be of our soft opening date and I will post up my menu! And look out for some changes in store for the Black Hogg.
To close, I wanted to introduce to you the guy who is doing the design for our restaurant. His name is Brendan Ravenhill. We saw the work he did at Osteria La Buca on Melrose and loved it. We asked him to do our place and he was eager to do so. He has designed all our furniture and the interior of our dining room. It looks incredible, but you will have to wait to see it. Here's some pictures of the work he did at Osteria La Buca to show you his skills.
|He loves to design chairs...|
|and he designed this chandelier as well!|
|the interior is tight.|
|his wife did the facade. and the food here is legit.|
