Old Gulf Coast Space?
Anyone know what's going in at the old Gulf Coast location on Park Blvd. across from Henry's/Sprouts? It's been completely repainted (and in a not so pleasing color) and there is construction happening on the old front patio seating area, also not particularly attractive at this stage.
Who's taken over the spot - so far no word that it'll be another fabric in the Brennan/Malarky empire. If the right concept goes in, it's a decent location with a bunch of potential to do well.
Tried Babbo's this Sunday for brunch. I had the benedict, wife had the breakfast crepes (eggs with bacon) with mornay and hollandaise sauces. Both were very solid. Place is definitely lighter and airier than GCG. Service was good. They are still in their "soft opening" phase, and a table next to us had some issues that were talked out with the manager. They're only open for breakfast/lunch right now and not serving dinner for another week or two. A mild wiff on the design is the wire cage around the outdoor seating (and a transient sleeping on the sidewalk nearby...).
