Susur tweets that Lee Lounge to open soon

Like every chef with a new venture and a pulse, Susur Lee has taken to Twitter to drum up buzz for his new restaurant, Lee Lounge. Last night, Lee dropped some tantalizing hints (and blurry pics) about the much-anticipated space’s status:

@susurlee: Lee lounge ready for a opening! Stay posted

The location has been under renovation since the short-lived Madeline’s closed its doors in April 2010.  The new expansion will offer more seating for Lee, next door, and create space for a new lounge with its own menu. Lee floated some thoughts on that menu, as well:

@susurlee: new menu for the expansion of lee @ 601 king west in the works…hmm, truffles? sweet corn? tomato soups? thoughts?

Still, we’re not holding our breath for the opening just yet. Last time we checked, the place was supposed to open back in August.
