The new restaurant from Mike Santoro (opening executive chef of Talula's Garden) and Mike Dorris will be called The Mildred. Sources close to the project say it's a done deal, and the name is set.
The previous restaurant in that location, James, was a neighborhood favorite, and had a very serious cult following in the local food set. As for timelines, Santoro hasn't divulged any just yet, but said that painting of the facade will begin in about a week. Santoro is still tweaking the concept, but we hear it will "new and exciting, something no one else is doing around here."
