Before it closes, head there in June and sample some of the restaurant's most popular dishes (priced at $25 for two courses or $50 for three at dinner). Designer Martin Vahtra (Rasika West End, Nopa) will handle the renovations, which will include new art and lighting and a new burgundy and blue color scheme. It will reopen in August. [Eaterwire]
