The restaurant at Saks Fifth Avenue is undergoing a fashionable makeover — with a new name to come soon.
Tuesday night's Symphony Ball underwriters' dinner was the last event in the Grille 5115 space. The restaurant is closing for approximately 10 days for an update.
The changes come as the former Ruggles Grille 5115 has completed a transition of ownership from Bruce Molzan, of Ruggles Grill and Ruggles Green, to Lucky Chopra's Landmark Houston Hospitality Group, which runs foodie-friendly bar Hearsay downtown.
Designer Jay Clues will highlight a neutral scheme of golds, silvers, whites and grays for the new space. It will also feature an oversize sculpture of white roses by Navid Ghedami, custom-made indoor foliage, a white quartz bar and a glass-topped piano encircled in bar stools. A stage on the west wall will feature fashion shows as part of the new concept.
Chef Pedro Silva will remain. He plans to showcase French cuisine with Latin accents.
The unnamed restaurant is scheduled to open March 18.
