Our new favorite obsession, sitting in silence with a dining mate while playing video trivia, is soon to arrive at our new favorite ugliest hang out. Yes, indeedy, uWink is opening a restaurant at Hollywood & Highland and suddenly the hazy skies have gone blue. In one of those ebullient press releases that could only be penned by the most highly talented flacks, we learn that uWink will open in early 2008 in a 6,500 sq. ft. space in H&H, a "hot spot for locals as well as a “must see” destination for international visitors." Via the release:
“We loved this location from the moment we saw it,” said Nolan Bushnell, chief executive officer of uWink. “Hollywood & Highland is the epicenter of Hollywood and the entertainment industry, which fits perfectly with uWink’s mission and demographic.” “We are proud to add this rising-star restaurant to our lineup,” said Terry Migliaccio, vice president of leasing at Hollywood & Highland Center. “uWink will provide our clientele with great food, refreshing drinks and Hollywood-caliber entertainment.”
If we're ever allowed to return to Hollywood & Highland, we'll look forward to trying to find uWink.
