Double-Double Your Refreshment: A Friday twofer
The rare double post today makes this a good friday, indeed.
Now that my friends at Grub Street have let the cat out of the bag, I can let you know that my friend, Andrew Fischel, of RUB BBQ is in the works to open a bigger, shinier more Vegas version of his RUB restaurant in.....uh....Vegas.
The restaurant is slated to open this summer at The Rio and will be a bigger, more open and colorful version of the restaurant, complete with rotisserie show pits that will most likely carry some piggies on their back. This sounds like the first of many collaborations between Harrah's and Fischel, and I wish them the best with them all.
No word on a new pitmaster (or comment from Paul Kirk who is the bbq mastermind behind the scenes), but I hope Scott stays in NY with us. He's a great cook and a super-cool gentleman.
Also, here's a look at the flashy new sign that the NY outpost has just erected....
