The vertical ad, right next to the publisher’s introductory essay, promises "a modern french(sic) inspired restaurant … with a twist" featuring "flavors from around the globe." Dinner to be served nightly and there will be a Sunday Brunch, too. "Zeste private chef service" was also offered.
Well, ain’t happened. Ain’t open. The phone number in the ad reaches a message that says,"The number you have dialed is not a working number," and the Web site, 180stjohn.com, is dead too. The old Tage restaurant space is locked and lonely.
