  1. News story from last summer:

    (scroll down about half way down the page



    Another Google search reveals that, as of yesterday, the restaurant was still soliciting applications for the (head?) chef position:

      1. I had lunch at Bacon, today. I had the pulled pork sandwich (7.95). I don't have a lot to say about it. It was good enough. The pork had a little smokiness, and the sauce had a spicy mustard taste (or maybe horseradish?). Another distinct flavor was cooked onion. It was served on a very toasted baguette with tropical cole slaw and fries.

        I thought the menu had something for everyone who would go to a breakfast/lunch place, but it easily fit on one side of one sheet of paper, breakfast and lunch.

        I'll be back to try breakfast.

        1. Does anybody else think that BACON is a stupid name for a restaurant? I don't think it inspires an urge to go eat there, etc.

                I'm sorry, I couldn't resist. I even sampled that commercial to use as a cellphone ringtone. Scared the hell out of my girlfriend's dog...
