BTW, the property is being gutted. If you look at the base of the pull down gate, you can see that they appear to have removed the floor that separates the basement from the future restaurant.

B. When complete, this entity might resemble Amorina, on Vanderbilt
C. They might have access to a backyard, which would allow dining in the warmer months. There is a big tree located behind Suite 723 in the above photo....
