According to their blog, Next – the upscale restaurant with rotating historical-era-influenced menus and “tickets” instead of reservations – is moving into the shuttered Follia location in the West Loop.
In a little more shocking news, the accompanying bar/lounge, Aviary, would take over Fulton Lounge, located next door.
No confirmation of these rumors, and no time table has been announced (the mega-huge blockbuster trailer for Next only says 2010). But it likely won’t be anytime in the immediate future – you know, since Fulton Lounge is still open and all.
Updates forthcoming, hopefully sooner rather than later.
