  1. Yep saw that too. Should be interesting and an interesting location.

    1. This is so exciting! As someone who tries to eat strictly paleo when eating at home (I can't say the same for when I dine out), I can certainly appreciate a restaurant that will cater toward that lifestyle. I hope the food is as good as the concept!

        Not sure I saw anything conducive to it being paleo.

          "Primal will offer a unique menu that utilizes naturally raised local meats and produce prepared into gluten-free entrees and seasonal side dishes as well as a full bar boasting craft cocktails created from local ingredients. Based on a primal eating lifestyle, the restaurant will give its guests the experience of enjoying fresh, unprocessed foods."

          Paleo eaters avoid gluten and prefer to use pastured, local meats and vegetables. "Primal" is a term often used in conjunction with paleo although if you follow Mark Sisson (Mark's Daily Apple)'s version, he includes dairy. This sounds like a very Paleo-friendly establishment. I hope I'm correct in my assessment of their intentions. We shall see!
