Union Restaurant Rendering The Valencia Group put out a press release today touting the restaurant they're prepping to open in the Union Lofts building at 8th and Hill. The rendering of the space (included in the release and also found on their website looks great.

I keep scratching my head, though, on the company behind the space. Back in July a release highlighted the involvement of "acclaimed restaurateur John Valencia." Today's release instead cites his "more than 18 years of experience in hospitality and customer service." I believe it also breaks ground in the nicknamed bartender space, saying that "Bar Manager Andrew 'the Alchemist' Willett" will be crafting "signature cocktails."

As a quick recap, the space includes 6,000 feet on the ground floor and a 5,000 foot basement with bank vault.
