Dionysus has closed in Midtown-Belvedere. Full disclosure: For a few years, Dionysus was my favorite bar. Dionysus opened on Preston Street in late 2003.  It was a good run. There were ownership and staff changes. I'm not sure what happened at the end. But it's definitely closed, informed sourcees assure me. Stay tuned. Good chefs came through, like Jeremy Price, now at the Creative Alliance's Marquee Lounge , and Shawn Lagergren, who owns the Cajun spot Tooloulou in Lauraville.

The 13th Floor is a treat. When we came here on a Friday night, people were dancing to live jazz music. Can you imagine? One couple, it was announced, had become engaged. You might, too. The renovated interior, which was unveiled last fall, is a real sweetheart. Dominated by deep reds and lustrous whites, it has the shimmery allure of a red velvet cake or a Faberge egg. The views of the city from high atop the Belvedere were always a reason for visiting, But, pre-renovation, there wasn't much reason to come back, unless you were following one of the bands that played there.

Patrons of Crush in Belvedere Square have grown concerned about the restaurant's status. Earlier this week, Crush reverted to a BYOB policy. Its liquor shelves are bare. No one should worry, according to Joe Corsi, who identified himself as minority owner in the restaurant. "We're here to stay," said Corsi, who added that Crush will be open full-time, with its liquor license back, in time for its Monday dinner service. The restaurant's liquor license has been renewed, according to a representative of the city's board of liquor license commissioners, but is waiting for someone to come down and pay for the renewal fee.

A reader passed on this tip to me the other day, about car break-ins this week along the eastbound lanes of Northern Parkway, near York Road and Belvedere Square: My husband was the most recent victim last night when he returned to his car after dinner at around 9 p.m. to find his passenger side window smashed. Fortunately, nothing was missing but the replacement estimate is $400 (just shy of our $500 deductible). Anyway, my husband learned that his was the 30th car to be broken into in as many days along this short stretch of road.

The Belvedere's 13th Floor bar has closed for renovations and will re-open in July. The news was posted on the bar's Facebook page. A front-desk manager at the hotel confirmed the news and said the bar would re-open in July; he declined to be named. Calls to the bar and its management group, Truffles Catering, have not been returned. Will update when they do. It seems the renovation will strip the bar's trademark leopard-print carpeting, according to a Facebook status update from Wednesday.
