Summer Tracking: Checking In On Delayed Openings

Around these parts, if you don't get your big, heavily delayed new restaurant open by Memorial Day, you pretty much wait until September, when the elites and the olds get back from their weekend jaunts out of town. While DBGB is a notable exception—she's opening to the public Monday—we're expecting openings to slow down a bit from their already glacial recession-era pace. But one never knows. Time to take a look at some of the most notably expected openings of the year that didn't quite squeak in before Memorial Day.
