Today’s topic is Megu, the very large, very underground rebirth of the opulent Japanese restaurant and lounge. It’s now at Dream Downtown and it opens Thursday in the old Cherry space.

This isn’t one of those situations where they just bring in new chairs and call it a different name. It looks entirely different from Cherry. Mostly, color-changing lights everywhere. Everywhere.

The photos will do it justice. And will show you salmon belly tacos and Sake Coladas.

Geoff Rynex is the only person named Geoff Rynex in the history of mankind. He would rather have the best burger than the best steak, likes hearing bartender stories and spends too much money on clothes.
