Tim and Liza Goodell (of A Restaurant and others) has a plan for the space vacated by Ristorante Max in Newport's Westcliff Plaza. Early next year, they're going to open their third outlet of 25 Degrees there. The other two 25 Degrees already in operation are in China and L.A.
I haven't been to either. But something struck me as familiar when I took a look at their menu. Is it just me or does the “Build Your Own Burger” section, with the list of toppings and sauces, sound a lot like The Counter's concept?
