The Depot: a long time coming, and just so

The Depot is having its opening night tonight, June 10th (for all folks who were following them on Twitter come this past Monday), and everyone will probably be sturdily pleased. The place is exactly as it should be, the front with its giant garage door open for summer, feeds to flat-screens of the Mainroom and the Entry, a large interior with ample space, a simple wood bar, and just-above-average menu of bar food. The general vicinity around First Ave. has long had a glut of terrible restaurants (just look across the street: Hard Rock, Applebee's, Hooters), just one reason the unpretentious Depot will probably be successful - another would be the thousands of people coming through that place any given week. Modest beginnings to lovely ends.
