Save Jason Sheehan's booth at Nine75
Nine75 is slated to reopen on Friday, October 10, under its new owner, the Jet Entertainment Group. There are lots of questions involved in this deal -- for example, will suppliers who'd cut off former owner Jim Sullivan return to Nine75? Will those outstanding bills be paid? How many of Sullivan's Nine75 employees will reappear at the new incarnation, which really returns Nine75 to its original, rock-and-roll roots?
But we have a more pressing question: What will happen to the booth dedicated to Jason Sheehan, "the worst table in the house" (right by the kitchen's side door) that he occupied, incognito, during one of his review meals there back in 2005, a few months after Nine75 opened.
After that piece was published, Leigh Sullivan, Jim's daughter and wife of original Nine75 chef Troy Guard, put up a plaque dedicating the booth to Sheehan. Both Leigh and Troy long ago cut ties to Nine75 -- but they left the plaque behind.
