Andersonville's Premise Closes, Sold to LM

After only four months in business and a trail of mixed reviews, Andersonville's Premise abruptly closed Sunday night to the surprise of its staff; chef Brian Runge told the Reader that Premise had record sales Saturday evening, and less than a week later, the Graham Elliot alum is out of work. LM Bistro has purchased Premise and plans to change the space and menu into a French concept called Brasserie 54 by mid-September. Given the bland meal I had at LM-helmed Troquet a few weeks ago, I imagine Premise's successor should be called The Revolving Door. Le sigh.
