More news surfaces today regarding the fate of the old Martini House restaurant space which shuttered last year. As it turns out, the rumors were true and Paul Flemming of P.F. Chang's did indeed pull out on his deal to take it over. Now Accidental Wino's Tim Costner is throwing out some hearsay that the new taker is the Hillstone Restaurant Group -- the same guys who operate Rutherford Grill and plan to open R + D Kitchen where the Napa Valley Grille used to be. Apparently they asked Farmstead's Sheamus Feeley to be the executive chef, but he didn't bite. Have further fuel for the rumor mill? Place it in the comments.
