5 Comments

  1. It is hard to keep up. Would you consider doing a “what’s opened” list quarterly?!
    Awesome!

  2. @Lanessa: At the end of every “New Kid on the Block” or “First Impressions” post is a list of posts about recently opened businesses — it’s basically what you’re looking for

  3. This is an awesome site and rundown! What’s the D.L. on El Vez?

  4. @Erik (not, that’s not me): Don’t know much about El Vez…. I’d assume it’ll be like the Philly one (http://www.elvezrestaurant.com/). And if I remember correctly, it’s being designed by David Rockwell. And there’ll be a takeout counter/window.

  5. New news: Saleya’s liquor license came through!! They were stocking the bar when we had lunch there today. Which, btw, was an excellent meal.
