...And For Those Who May Have Blinked

Two of our favorites, Sheba Ethiopian restaurant in the Design

District, and Le Bon on Lincoln Road, called it quits last week. Prime

Italian, from the Prime One Twelve folks, opened its' doors across the

street from its' sister steakhouse. Barton G secured the concessions at

the Adrienne Arscht Center For The Performing Arts, and will be

debuting two restaurants there later this year. As inventive as Barton

G. Weiss can be, he's going to have to work awfully hard to top this:

Chef/owner Craig Carlino's Hot Tuna, an Asian-fusion "theatrical

restaurant experience", opened earlier this week at 764 Washington

Avenue. Here is the description: "Every 90 minutes, a large projection

screen will display a water-color painting that comes to life and

signals the show to start with the strike of a gong. The screen then

disappears into the ceiling, revealing a 'runway' on the bar which

professionally trained servers will use as a platform to perform

choreographed three-minute dance numbers to popular rock 'n' roll

tunes, including hits by Def Leppard, AC/DC and Bon Jovi." And,

presumably, by Jack Cassady and Jorma Kaukonen (First Pull Up, Then

Pull Down being one of the all-time great blues/rock albums) -- or does

Hot Tuna refer to a menu item? We don't have any photos of the cuisine,

but we can leave you with a shot of the "Hot Tuna Girls":
