TheListAreYouOnIt’s Nycci Nellis tweeted a rumor yesterday that Vidalia and Bistro Bis chef/owner Jeffrey Buben may be taking over the space currently occupied by Potenza on September 1 in order to open a restaurant of his own.

Buben confirmed to Y&H this morning that he is in fact opening another restaurant but that no details have been finalized and he is still working on a lease. He would not disclose any further details about the type of restaurant or its location.

“When we get it all together we’ll make an announcement,” Buben says.
