Wow! I always thought that was kind of a tough location, but they always seemed to make a go of it.

Man, space is really at a premium in there, it must be in high demand! :roll:

Downer is right. This makes me sad, although I'm not fully sure why. I haven't been in awhile, but I loved that it was there. It was a great pre- or post-movie spot.

Yes & no. Spaces with a separate exterior entrance have an advantage and there's certainly no shortage of parking space. Sounds suspiciously like there's another business, restaurant presumably given the kitchen, waiting to move in before the keys are cold.

Agree.

I'm remembering Vint (then Java Brewing) pushing Allo Spiedo, of sainted memory, out of its spot in Clifton. Just to name a few ...

There is no one pushing us out or Going after the space. My Business partner (Jim Henry) is Retiring and our lease is up. Simple as that. All of the Equipment goes into storage for another location in the east end. The space has never done that well, we are a Lunch spot trying to do Dinner. If anyone out there knows of any Restaurant jobs available please contact me personally (376-5976). I have been able to absorb some of the employees but still have 2 cooks and a great front of the house person that needs a Job.
