Also it appears that they try to do a lot of local sourcing for product by the list of farms at the bottom of the menu.
Now for my take on the old Bauer's location that is sure to rankle some of you. While I'm all for saving historical properties, sometimes it really just doesn't make sense from a financial outlook.
I mean even when the place was still open, it was a dump in the non public spaces. The roof leaked and the property had been added on to several times over the years and the wiring, pluming and general infrastructure of the building was in poor shape to put it mildly. Unless some deep pocketed people were willing to put up some pretty substantial cash to restore the property, I say good riddance. The Wilson's spent enough "saving" Whiskey Row that I'm sure they will never see the full return on.
Another fine example, I'm wondering when they are going to bulldoze Colonial Garden's on New Cut Rd.? It's no surprise to me why they can't seem to find someone to take on the project and for good reason. If I were a developer looking at that property, why would I be inclined to try to restore an old eyesore at triple the price of new construction. Especially in a location like that one, where one would be lucky to recoup any investment in a reasonable time frame.
Just because a place is old and the fact that Abe Lincoln may have taken a dump there once, is not always the best reason to slap a Historical Site label on a property to keep it from the wrecking ball.
