Todd A. Price reports that sommelier Sara Kavanaugh has departed The Grill Room to open her own restaurant in the former Rambla space (217 Camp St) inside the International House. Not many details yet, other than Kavanaugh is considering several chefs, and the plan is for the restaurant to be more casual than fine dining.
It's guaranteed to have a touch of swank going on, though, as the hotel is home to craft cocktail hub Loa and owned by entrepreneur Sean Cummings, who brought the hotness to the Rice Mill Lofts via Ian Schnoebelen's Mariza.
