      Great. The vacant red barn can now be used for something. There is a parking issue there though . . .

        Yes - there is a good-sized lot attached, but nowhere to put any overflow. It's also in the middle of the block on a busy street - almost impossible to turn left either into or out of it. It would actually be easier to park a block away and walk, which nobody around here wants to do. I would imagine that's been the downfall of every other restaurant that's tried to make that location work. The last place even had free valet parking, fat lot of good it did them.
