A public notice of application to sell alcoholic beverages has been made at the former homes of TGI Fridays and the short-lived DISH Restaurant (that vacated the space on November 14, 2013 after a 14 month stint). The name of the business is Janchi Korean BBQ and Bar. No other information at this time, but stay tuned.

What does janchi (잔치) mean in English? "Feast" or "banquet." And there ya have it. For now, at least.
