Nothing much ... Google pulled up a Kevin Gibson piece in Insider from July 22 with some nuggets about ownership, but he wasn't able to get anyone to say much ...

From wings to barbecue, Korean-style

Buffalo Wild Wings was a staple in the Highlands for a decade and a half at 1055 Bardstown Road, serving as a gathering point for college basketball games and drawing NFL fans on Sundays, but the business suddenly closed last November.

We reported in January that Sapporo’s owners would open a second location in the spot, which confused many, given the original location is just 1.2 miles down Bardstown Road. But owners U Kim and Mi Kim recently applied for a liquor license for the location, and now we have a better idea of what to expect: Asian barbecue.

The name of the restaurant, according to the application, will be Gogi 1055 Korean BBQ. While it was initially reported that sushi would be on the menu, the name suggests barbecue will be the focal point.

A message sent to U Kim asking for more details was not immediately answered. The license was requested for no later than July 30, so perhaps we’ll know more in the coming weeks.

I took a look through the front door about a week ago. There was a lot of construction going on, but it didn't look like they were anywhere close to opening.

At some point you have to wonder if they've given it up. :( . On the other hand, people were saying the same thing about Noche when it took so long, but they seem to be going great now!

They've got their sign up, and there's furniture inside -- including the tables with grills -- so I assume they're getting close to opening. I haven't been able to find a website or Facebook page for Gogi yet.
