After much waiting and anticipation, Son of a Gun, the new restaurant from Animal chefs Vinny Dotolo and Jon Shook, is opening for business tomorrow night. We spoke with Shook over the phone, who confirmed the opening, and told us that they are "just finishing the final menu today."

The paper covering the restaurant's windows is set to come down tomorrow morning, and then at 2 p.m. their website will go live and the phone number will be connected. At that point, people can begin calling to reserve a table. Since half of the restaurant is walk-in only, with communal tables, and the other half is for reservations, expect the books to fill up rather quickly.

Hours of operation for Son of a Gun will be Sunday through Thursday, from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.; on Friday and Saturday they will be open from 6 p.m. until 1 a.m. In a related change, Animal is reducing their hours to coincide with Son of a Gun, and will now close at 1 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays as well.

To make reservations after 2 p.m. tomorrow, call (323) 782-9033.
