If you’ve been to the hit eatery in the gayborhood, you have have noticed the recessed, elevated dining area which looks like it could be a stage. Well, McEnery noticed that, too, and that’s what it could become. Plans are in place to add a semi-opaque curtain to run the length of the area that would filter about 70 percent of visibility, making it ideal for private dining and mixers. But it also makes it a great space as a stage for late-night entertainment.
Starting soon, on Friday and Saturday nights from about 11 p.m. to 2 a.m., that space will give way to drag shows, DJs and the like. The dining crowd usually slows down by then, so it seems like a good fit, McEnery says, as Dish remains open with a full bar as well as waiter service to the tables. Already booked to fill the space is The Lady Bunny, pictured — not the flat bread, which is delicious there — who will play there Pride weekend.
And they are already looking forward to sometime in the next two or three weeks opening up the patio once the weather cools down.
