    I don't know when the Abbey is planning to open. No signs up on Sunday as to an opening date. I wonder if you can make a res @ RB? Give it a try. The area is a zoo now, and will continue thru the w/e.

      looking at the place yesterday the windows were all still covered. I think the Abbey is going to give the Wash Sq. Tavern a run for their money.

              Went for drinks last Sat. and liked the vibe that night - mostly 30s/40s. The place was full but seats were available to relax.

          Went to the Abbey last week. The menu is so similar to Washington Tavern - since the chef was there I guess it isn't surprising, but I feel sort of bad for the Tavern which has been such a terrific place for so long. To have the competition so close. . .

          I had the bison bolognese, which I was so sad wasn't on the menu at the Tavern anymore. It was one of my favorite dishes. Hope both places do well - Josh is a terrific cook.
