On a side note, during my eternal snooping around I once heard a whisper that Wilder was looking around Downtown for a spot to open another eatery...other than Downtown Kitchen + Cocktails, that is. It was just a mention, but one that was echoed when Wilder was interviewed about closing Janos and the J-BAR. One never knows what that man will do next, but keep your eyes peeled. He's always up to something.
