Owners of Low Country Southern Boil Restaurant Opening Something at Former Belly-Up Space (1132 S. Wabash)?

A reader writes:
Not sure if you've seen this, but last night it was posted on the old Belly Up. Seems to be the same company that owns Low Country up North.

We're not familiar with ME Restaurants or Low Country, but if that's true and they're opening up a similar concept it would be something different for the neighborhood.  Low Country (3343 N. Clark) seems to be popular according to Yelp where it has 4.5 stars on 380+ reviews.  

Here is a video from their website that likely we make you hungry (and excited about the possibilities):

The location and space is pretty good.  However, it's currently buried behind scaffolding at the new 26-story high-rise at 1140 S. Wabash.  The previous restaurant Belly-Up seemed to feel the brunt of that challenge, but the scaffolding will eventually go away so this new concept should be setup for some solid foot traffic.

Does anyone have any other info on this one?
