But, with the recent sale to Ruby Hospitality it was announced both spaces will soon be re-filled. The space next to the hotel lobby will become a coffee shop of some sort. And, now we know more about what will take the basement space, that was last Catacombs Pub ( 110 S. Monroe ).
That space will become a new craft cocktail bar and eatery called Gilded Unicorn.
Gilded Unicorn appears to be a project of well known local chef Adam Hegsted, the same name behind The Wandering Table and Yards a Bruncheon in Kendall Yards.
We are waiting to here back about when Gilded Unicorn will open for business, but we do know it will offer a full bar and a decent size food menu. An early look at the menu reveals mostly American dishes with somewhat unique twists. Everything from sandwiches, entrees, salads and smaller appetizer type dishes. A drink menu had not been published as of yet.
Gilded Unicorn will be open seven days a week, Mon. - Thurs. 11:30 am - 12:00 am , Fri. & Sat. 11:30 am - 1:30 am and Sun. 8:00 am -2:30 pm ( perhaps for a Sunday brunch service ? ).
Gilded Unicorn's website is still a work in progress ( as of the time I am writing this ), but will be able to be found at- www.gildedunicorn.com
