Now there's a planned addendum, which is effectively a NEW restaurant altogether. Here's the scoop, straight from a reliable source who wishes to remain anonymous:
Just wanted to pass along some exclusive info on Jason's new place. It's a 17-seat omakase-style bar/restaurant located in the tiny space behind the Playground that Stephanie from the Seabirds truck was considering using. It will be connected to the Playground, but all of the cooking will be done on the line right in front of the guests and the menu will be totally chef-driven, kinda like the new barista-driven Theorem. The name will be (as of now) "Invitation Only" and it will literally be invitation only. Customers need to be on the list, with invitations extended to friends of the restaurant or customers they think are really nice.
