Lights Out for Farmerie 58
Just got a tip from Urban Daddy that Farmerie 58 is no longer.
A call to the restaurant, which had a lot of drama in 2008, confirmed that the farm-centric, River North resto served its last meal last Saturday.
The only info 312DD could get for now is that there's a sign in the window stating a new concept is coming soon from Slick Design . . .
UPDATE: Slick Design, which was also behind Fuel's concept, is working on a 15,000-square-foot, two-level, clubby restaurant in the space that is expected to open this fall.
UPDATE TWO: Dish says owner Sandy Yu, who was also behind Farmerie 58, will turn the first level into a sushi bar (wasn't it already that?!), while the second floor will be reserved for "casual izakaya, i.e., Japanese small plates."
