When Bump and Grind, the Uptown breakfast and lunch joint best known for its wickedly crass drag queens who made weekend brunch worth the early rise, shuttered at the end of 2009, you could hear the collective cries of anguish all over the city. There was nothing -- absolutely nothing -- more brilliant than Bump and Grind's Petticoat Bruncheon.
Except maybe burgers, specifically Park Burger burgers. Yep, Jean-Philippe Failyau, Frank Bonanno's partner at Osteria Marco and owner of Park Burger, 1890 South Pearl Street, has snapped up the space, which will soon become Park and Co.
"I love that stretch of Seventeenth Avenue, especially late-night when it really comes alive" says Failyau, who tells me that the "concept will be an American bar with some signature burgers from Park Burger." Plus, he says, "we'll have a great happy hour, Shuffleboard and Foosball and a huge patio."
