It’s opening on December 1st, but won’t open to the public until Thursday, December 3rd. They expect to seat 100-150.
Chef Mark Bohr will be the Executive chef– new blood from Sarasota, FL and Chicago.
They will be featuring tapas, sushi, and signature cocktails with a Latin flair– influences include Spain, Latin America and South America.
Around 10-11 PM, the restaurant will transition to the lounge. There will be a resident DJ (not yet announced) and an area of the restaurant that is cocktail-only, as well as an area that is bottle service only. Bowie emphasized that Bootsy Ruby’s, unlike other venues in what has become the new bar district, will be a restaurant first and a lounge second.
You can expect to spend $40-50 per person to have dinner, but with plates running between $7-13, you can get a quick bite before a show or something after a show as well and not break the bank. This seems like a nice, high-end alternative to a lot of the more expensive restaurants in that block– it seems like it will fit in, but maybe be slightly more affordable, depending on how much you eat/drink.
Watch this space– you’ll be seeing a little bit more about Bootsy’s sometime soon.
