    This sounds awesome! I’m especially excited about having another brunch spot in the neighborhood besides B&P (nothing wrong with B&P, but variety is great…)

    I’m really excited about them putting a new restaurant into this space–I recently moved into 425 Mass and I welcome any new restaurants to this part of town. However, I do wish it was more reasonably priced. I know this is an expensive town, but I feel like we could really use a true neighborhood gem with solid food at truly reasonable prices. The description states that it “Plans to position itself as mid-priced neighborhood restaurant and bar,” but I don’t really think of dinner entrées priced in $17-$27 range as mid-price. I mean, I can see how one could say that, but for those prices the food better be really good, because for $17-27 I can eat at a place like Central, one of my fave restaurants in town. Or I can just go across the street to Buddha Bar. I’d like to see a good restaurant in the area at a price point I can eat at on a weekday without feeling like I just splurged. Maybe I’m just “poor” compared to the rest of the neighborhood though.

    I hear you, Allison – I agree those prices are definitely on the high end of “mid-priced.” But I think they’re in line with other downtown restaurants, and it makes me think that they are aiming for the weekday business lunch/dinner crowd, in addition to the neighborhood residents. In any event, I’m all for new retaurants in the neighborhood, whatever the price point…

    Regarding the pricing – it’s basically the same their other venture: Town Hall in Glover Park. Here is a link to Town Hall’s dinner menu. It seems to me there will be a nice spectrum of price points at dinner – you’ll still have the option of getting a burger or roasted pork sandwich at dinner for $11. I wouldn’t get overly hung up on the the fact that the top end of the spectrum will be $27. I definitely feel like I will be able to eat here for much less than I could at Buddha Bar or many other downtown restaurants… of course let’s hope the food will taste good…
