On May 11th, as a way of reassuring Tailor's loyal following all hope was not lost in the face of bankruptcy, the restaurant blogged, "the song remains the same..." But so much for that as last night was the second week of Andrew Andrew's Thursday DJ residency "Cocktails & Dreams" and we just have to ask, is this really what Tailor was missing? We don't know what business the boys bring to the bar, but we always liked the downstairs at Tailor just the way it was, if anything wishing the vibe down below rose up. Also, if you're $300k in debt, can you really afford to replace your iPod with two DJs?
Another new addition, Tailor's website has gone bloghappy since the bankruptcy story broke. The site now includes a main blog, a Bar Room blog and a Tailor Kitchen blog which would be great if they were more effective but offering little more than eGullet quality food porn isn't going to do it. If this is their recipe for the restaurant's revival, and not just the beginning of the end - and we hope that it's not! - adding some recipes to the site sure would be appreciated.
