INCOMING: Bailiwick

Owner Blake Thompson pairs with pals from Bare Back Grill and Raglan Public House


Published:

The new blood transfusion of shiny-shirted Gaslamp continues. Mexican food spot Alambres (756 5th Ave.) has mercifully closed. In its place will come Bailiwick, what owner Blake Thompson is calling an “unpretentious cocktail party.” It’ll be loosely based off of Thompson’s concept in St. Petersburg, Mandarin Hide. They’ve stripped out the fabricated guts and revealed historical brick walls, high ceilings and stained glass (Alambres apparently was going for the claustrophobia-chic aesthetic). The new décor will be “clean, modern, New England-style.” Thompson's pal PJ Lamont (Bare Back Grill, Raglan Public House) will oversee the kitchen with a full-on brunch program (prosciutto-fig salad, blintzes, ham hock ragout, grilled oysters with sake and jalapeno butter, etc..) and a litany of Bloody Marys. Set to open end of November.
