So there's a third restaurant coming to Eighth Avenue's The Melrose development, as Bongo Java founder Bob Bernstein reveals details for his upcoming 'modern diner.' Bernstein, declining to reveal the name of the project, tells The Tennessean that the 3,000 square foot space will have seating for approximately 80 and serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as Bongo Java's coffee and beer and wine. The diner will join recent Chicago transplant Dale Levitski's new restaurant, Sinema, and a still as-yet-unnamed restaurant and bar from M.L. Rose owner Austin Ray.
