Eater Hospice: Can Rush Limbaugh Save Kobe Club?

Status: DEATHWATCH
Time on the 'Watch: 13 weeks
Prognosis/Analysis: When we checked in with Mr. Chodorow's shiny meatshrine a few weeks back, the outlook was still grim. (8pm RESY, day of, on a Friday? Not good.) But there may be a strange salvation for Kobe Club that we didn't see coming. From a transcript of today's Rush Limbaugh Show, here's El Rushbo:

RUSH: I gotta tell you a funny story that happened last night. As you know, we're here in New York. I'm coming to you today from high atop the EIB Building in Midtown Manhattan. I told you about this Kobe Club steakhouse, Jeffrey Chodorow's place. I went to it two or three weeks ago when I was here, and I absolutely loved it. I had a great time. I went in there last night and they told me a slew of people have come in to check the place out.
That's only the beginning of an encounter that includes Rush and President Clinton yukking it up under the samurai swords last night. Must. Read. Rest assured, the (massively frazzled) Deathwatch Committee has convened an emergency executive session.
