As restaurant openings go, it's hard to think of one that has gone quieter than Embers Ski Lodge, the Pacific Northwest-inspired 'gastrobar' slated for the old Vinea Wine & Spirits space next to Mafiaoza's in 12 South. First reported back in late Spring, the project was slated for an August opening, and once that passed, not much more was heard.
But now it looks like things could be picking up, as temporary exterior signage recently appeared around the space. And Eater now hears that an opening, barring further delays, could be just after the first of the new year. So be sure to send any tips to the tipline, and be sure to check back for continued updates and progress reports.
