Would you have expected anything otherwise in the bottom of a Ritz Carlton next to the banks brand new tower? Yeah- we really do need to get some affordable eats in uptown, though. Hopefully Brooklyn Village and Levine's land will bring affordable eats as well as takeout to serve the families and students that will be populating these areas.

I was hoping for at least a high-end shopping boutique....but no, not suprised.

Raintree, don't forget Capitol Grill, and Bentleys on 27 (if you count that as a steakhouse), plus Chima, the new Brazilian steakhouse, plus Wachovia is rumored to be looking for a high end steakhouse for thier new tower.

Mad Cow's Disease!? The odds of that happening are infinitesimal compared to the number of customers who die in car wrecks on their way to the steakhouses in this country.

I agree with others, though, that it is getting out of hand how many steakhouses are going in lately. I guess almost all restaurants serve steaks, so it is just a matter of branding, but it is still crazy.

Maybe the moral of this story is that the banking industry is contingent on copious quantities of red meat~lol

Vegan restaurants all over Uptown might send the wrong message.:)

This is going to be a fantastic once it's all build, not only is the skyline going to get some infill, but I'm looking looking forward to the beginning of seeing some Uptown retail.

.........hopefully they finish off the work they did on the roof of the deck because it looks a little fishy right now.

A fishy roof is something to avoid at all costs! lol

Is the Ritz still going for LEED? I assume that is LEED type glass going up.
