MJ, Bill Kim Team Up For Slam Dunk Asian Spot
Now, this is a dream team we can appreciate!
Bill Kim (Belly Shack, Urban Belly) is teaming up with Michael Jordan's Cornerstone Restaurant Group (Michael Jordan's Steakhouse) for a new Asian BBQ concept going into the former one sixtyblue space in the West Loop.
Belly Q—with plans to open later this spring—promises to be all that, as the press release I got Tuesday morning indicates:
"The opening of Belly Q brings big changes to the west end of Randolph Street. The interior—made largely from materials chosen for their overlooked beauty—is a bold departure from the space's former life. As for the menu, still being refined, expect a flavor palette that's boldly smoky and brightly piquant, with a depth of flavor that sneaks up on you and leaves you wanting more."
Mmmmmmm, sounds promising. I'll keep you updated as I get more info . . .
