Does Shin Thompson Have A Name For His New West Loop Restaurant Yet?!

I got this tip from an Ultimate Insider over the weekend:
"Not sure if Shin Thompson's restaurant name has leaked yet, but he applied for a liquor license under the name Roast at 952 W. Lake St."
If you remember, the Michelin star-rated chef left Bonsoiree over the summer to work on a new West Loop project with Gemini Bistro co-owner Ryan O'Donnell.
Sometimes owners use a "working" name when applying for a liquor license, so the name Roast may or may not stick . . .
UPDATE: Thompson tells 312DD: "ROAST is just the partners' initials and LLC name. Not the restaurant name. Restaurant name to be revealed soon."
