|The crew from Nick and Eddie are opening a new place in the Warehouse District|
They said they would be back
, and the re-emergence has begun. Jeremy Zoss at the Downtown Journal
is reporting that Ben Hill has nabbed the old City Billiards space at 25 Fourth St. N. The proposed name is The Belmore.
They will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner seven days a week. Much of the cooking will be done from scratch. Hill described the food as "Kind of like a fancy diner -- that's what we want to call it. Fancy bar food slash hippie food."
As they did with Nick and Eddie, they will have a little music on the weekends, though no DJs or 18-plus nights. They are trying to distance themselves from some of the other music venues in the area.
By day they will have 40 seats and offer both dine-in and deli takeout; by night the maximum capacity will be 300.
City Pages had originally reported that Doug and Jessica Anderson also of Nick and Eddie and the late Au Rebours were to be involved in this project, based on the direct quotes taken from the Downtown Journal Story. We received an email from Mr. Anderson alleging that the Journal's author "did no fact checking." Please see below for more thoughts from Mr. Anderson.
