Just overheard some people talking about Burgundy Room possibly closing?
This would be unwelcome news if true. Hopefully someone can dismiss this scuttlebutt.December 15, 2010 12:26 pm at 12:26 pm #418409
From what I’ve heard Cameron Mitchell is buying it and changing the name/concept.December 15, 2010 12:50 pm at 12:50 pm #418410

Last I heard, that deal fell through.

That deal was dead before it started. He was even surprised he was supposed to be buying it. Unfortunately, rumors start and run quickly; this one had zero merit.
I have no idea if they are talking about closing or not. I will say this though; at the end of the year, a lot of business owners look at the numbers and see if it’s worth going into a new year. With liquor license renewal due for the next year, I’m sure a lot of people are making sure they want to move forward.December 15, 2010 2:40 pm at 2:40 pm #418413
I sincerely hope they remain open, they have the best beef carpaccio in town and is one of my top go to bars for girl’s night.December 15, 2010 2:45 pm at 2:45 pm #418414
Sounds like I need to use my gift certificate soon. I’ve always liked the Burgundy room. I hope this just turns out to be a rumour.December 15, 2010 3:45 pm at 3:45 pm #418415
Agreed, I’d love to see them stay open. I’ve always liked BR, especially in the winter with their big fireplace. :)December 15, 2010 3:56 pm at 3:56 pm #418416

much like a fruit roll up, i want to mash up the carpaccio and put it all in my mouth at once, it’s that good.December 15, 2010 4:36 pm at 4:36 pm #418417

Think I’m onto something?
I wish I had a slicer at home. I’d rarely use it, but would be so awesome to have. They’re expensive!December 15, 2010 5:49 pm at 5:49 pm #418419
I stopped in about a month ago to have a few drinks and a girl I was with started chatting up our server about the rumor. She said that they’d at least be open until the new year and then would potentially be closing. I hate seeing another Short North business go under, especially a place like Burgundy Room. I’d rather have a sole owner in that space, rather than another Cameron Mitchell restaurant……nothing against CM.December 20, 2010 11:25 pm at 11:25 pm #418420
Oh, this would break my heart. This is my favorite restaurant in town, hands down!December 20, 2010 11:40 pm at 11:40 pm #418421
bring back K2U.December 21, 2010 12:02 am at 12:02 am #418422
Kent couldn’t make the rent which is why they got the boot.
Bring back operators who can pull it all together!
