In addition, CommonWealth didn't go bankrupt, which I've heard as well -- it apparently did quite well but was sold by its owner, Jamie Leeds, who apparently got a great offer from her landlord, Terry Cullen. Leeds said she wanted to focus on expanding her other restaurant, Hank's Oyster Bar. Cullen also owns the Highland Park building and Lou's City Bar and said a few months ago that he'd be reopening the place with a similar concept.
So hopefully all is not lost for CommonWealth fans. Let's hope the new place, which I hope to learn more about, will have Scotch eggs.
