Gem Restaurant & Lounge, the latest from Big Night Entertainment Group, opens tomorrow, says Thrillist. In its own words, the venue is "a fusion of gastro-lounge and ultra-exclusive supper club," and at a time of heightened awareness over economic inequality, Gem is unafraid of touting its luxury status: "Welcome to the opulence of Gem" declares its website. The decor is correspondingly posh and claims inspiration from similarly decadent establishments in Paris, New York, London and Montreal. Big Night also runs Red Lantern and is planning to open Empire this summer. Gem will open its doors on Saturday at 4pm.
