NoMI to close for four-month overhaul, and a Bill Kim tidbit

Still glowing from its Michelin star, NoMI is closing -- but only for a facelift.

The restaurant on the seventh floor of the swanky Park Hyatt, 800 N. Michigan, will close after Jan. 30 for a mostly cosmetic overhaul. The goal is to reopen in June, a spokeswoman says.

Clearly, NoMI ain't broke. But this renovation has been in the works for about five years.

Urbanbelly/Belly Shack owner (and Michelin Bib Gourmand pick) Bill Kim, meanwhile, says he's consulting with several other chefs on "new concepts for the city" for 2011. He's not talking about a new member of the Belly family just yet -- though Kim still is holding fast to "my dream to put all the Bellys in one place," namely in the humble strip mall on North California that now houses Urbanbelly.

I just tried to make a reservation for NoMI and learned of their closing. January to June is more than a "4 month" overhaul, yes?
