What's the plan for the old Wu's spot?

Wu's, a Chinese/New Orleans-themed restaurant, closed several weeks ago.

After several restaurants have tried and failed at the corner of East and South boulevards, the Bottle Cap Group is going back to basics this summer.

The plan to replace Wu's Cajun Sea Food, which closed several weeks ago, will be Rosemont, a simple neighborhood tavern.

“We’re going back to the basics with cheap drinks, fried goodness, milkshakes and all the erratic fun in between, “ said owner Britton McCorkle.

After years as a raw bar, Vinnie's Sardine, the building at 1714 South Blvd. has since been Nan & Byron's, a local-food concept, then Wu's, which was only open for a year. The plan is to reopen as Rosemont this summer.
