Rumors Behind the Restaurant News

Well, my staycation is over and we are back at work. For some reason my computer and Internet connection at home are moving slower than I am this morning so, until I dock at the Mother (beat, beat) Ship, I’ll be brief.

I hear the old Pescabar space is morphing into a “pub concept” to be called Exchange. Pub concepts are hot. I wish someone would get a sense of humor and open a pub concept offering “Recession Cuisine.” We could have a lot of fun writing that menu. Lots.

And speaking of fun, it sounds like Hully&Mo had a soft (hard?) opening on New Year’s Eve. One insider reports “they were swinging from the chandeliers.” See: pubs with chandeliers. That’s a nice start to the year. Okay then, let’s get this party started.
