The Office, a restaurant and lounge, will host a special preview opening tonight at 9 p.m. at 5917 Delmar Boulevard. This is the address east of the Delmar Loop previous occupied by Binions.
Tonight's event will feature DJ Charlie Chan and drink specials. Gut Check spoke briefly with the event's promoter, who told us that while the kitchen isn't fully functional, there will be samples of the restaurant's contemporary American cuisine.
As you might infer from the Office's sign, which includes the slogan "Where Professionals Come to Play," the venue appears to be aiming for an upscale vibe. Indeed, the flyer for tonight's event notes that "upscale attire" is required.
