50 Eggs taking over Gables Diner space

This just in: 50 Eggs, the parent company of Yardbird Southern Table + Bar, Swine Southern Table + Bar, Khong River House and Patpong Road continues its expansion south and is allegedly taking over the space formerly known as the Gables Diner. We asked egg-in-chief John Kunkel for a clue, but while we wait for the official word, our snarky source, alluding to Kunkel’s latest legal woes versus former employee, Chef Bee, tells us the buzz is that it will be a tavern of sorts, adding, “maybe for all the attorneys on his payroll.” Snort. Or tort(e)? Stay tuned.

This in from Kunkel: “We are looking at the Gables space as well as others, but nothing is finalized. Also, we are working on several concepts and have not decided on what would fit the Gables best.”
