D’vine a wine barA popular northside wine bar will close at the end of October to move to a smaller space behind Castleton Square Mall. D'vine a wine bar moved from Woodfield Crossing into the Echelon building near 82nd Street and Allisonville Road late in 2007. Now, the owners are looking at space about half the size of the 5,500 square feet at Echelon. If the owners can secure financing, the restaurant will share a building with the King's Image men's clothing shop near Buca di Beppo, said owner Bennet Ackerman. The Echelon space was too large and impersonal, he said. There is no reopening date.

Siam SquareIn other restaurant news, a new Thai restaurant called Siam Square opened on Monday at 936 Virginia Ave. Paul Baumgarten of the Southeast Neighborhood Development group raved in an e-mail: "The décor is very minimal, but very appealing. The food is top notch, and the owners, Ed and Sasatone Rudisell, are great people."

  • I ate at Siam Square today. The place was packed, the food was also pretty good and cheap. I can easily see being a regular here.
  • I am afraid to go into the Kings Image. Anyone tell me what its all about.
  • Da Hooey:

    King's Image is a custom tailoring shop. I had several suits made there a while back (when I used to be required to wear them on a regular basis - HA!) and they do top-notch work.
  • I've been to Siam Square 3 times already. Love it!
  • Thanks for the info Don. It just looks a little bachrach-y to me.

    You just can't beat the sales at Macy's for suits tho. I mean, you can totally get away with off the rack Lauren or JonesNY or Hillfiger in this market. Dontcha think?
  • Had dinner at Siam Square the other night and was very impressed. The food was great, reasonably priced, the service was good, and the place was pretty cool inside.
