SHARE Locations of Achatz projects revealed?

NBC New York reports, from a very reliable source, that it knows the locations of Chicago super chef Grant Achatzs two new projects, Next and Aviary.

According to their blog, Next the upscale restaurant with rotating historical-era-influenced menus and tickets instead of reservations is moving into the shuttered Follia location in the West Loop.

In a little more shocking news, the accompanying bar/lounge, Aviary, would take over Fulton Lounge, located next door.

No confirmation of these rumors, and no time table has been announced (the mega-huge blockbuster trailer for Next only says 2010). But it likely wont be anytime in the immediate future you know, since Fulton Lounge is still open and all.

Updates forthcoming, hopefully sooner rather than later.
