Gastronome extraordinaire Joe Ricchio announced via his personal Facebook page today that he is opening a bar with Joel Beauchamp, his co-host on the defunct Food Coma TV webseries. Ricchio confirmed for Eater that this means he is no longer involved with Will Garfield's mystery project at the former home of Miyake Diner. Aside from the idea that the bar will offer food as well as drink, few details are available at the moment:

"So Joel and I just decided to do this, no location no name yet but I'm really excited to be involved. It will definitely be eclectic, that's for sure."

Stay tuned for more info as the duo schemes, and if you can't contain your excitement/malaise, hit the comments.
