Extreme Makeover: Restaurant Edition

There’s been a recent trend of restaurants trying to reinvent themselves, and – like the spectacular Lana Del Rey – there’s a new name to go with every new look.

A few days ago, DMN‘s Leslie Brenner announced that Bijoux is closed until March 2 when it will reopen as a bistro with new table settings and decor. Goodbye, formal dining. See you when the economy gets better.

Teresa Gubbins over at Pegasus also reports today that Swig/Gin Mill on Henderson is dropping the “Swig” over a trademark dispute and shortening the name to “The Gin Mill,” which sounds better anyway.
