Two downtown dining snippets we almost missed in last Wednesday's Herald-Sun:
- As a reader here suggested, the new whiskey bar going in on Main St. at Five Points next door to Toast will, in fact, be called Whiskey. Rhys Botica, one of the partners in The Federal, is the mover behind the venue, which will feature liquors and sixteen draft beers. It's obvious from the decor we spotted earlier that it'll be a classy place, but we can also now confirm it'll be a private one -- as in private membership club, like the Pinhook.
- The week of June 22 is the scheduled debut for Cuban Revolution, the new restaurant in the 'Pose's old digs at American Tobacco. Look for a full bar, seating for 120, and live music -- plus, possibly, salsa lessons.
