Hey, it is low season. We get our entertainment where we can.

By the way, Pot, you are reading a thread that bores you and then commenting on it. Just sayin'.

Hugs,

Well the work continues albeit at a snails pace. They almost have the new façade finished. Guess we will see if they carry on beyond that. Has anyone seen them working inside lately?

They are still keeping the "brand" top secret. Remember the last restaurant that wanted to keep things secret? It was in Riberas and moved to a fabulous new location but no one knows where it is.

What is the advantage of keeping the brand a secret?

I have seen a lot of excitement generated by the anticipation of a popular brand coming to town. Unless, of course....

Well it could be a great success or a great disappointment based on all the food critics we have locally. jaja

If this restaurant can serve the same quality of food at a similar price point as Gaucho Tequila or Tango it should be a hit given the ample parking and spectacular views. Seating should never be an issue given the size of that place. Throw in some good entertainment for the weekend night crowd and give Adelitas a run for the money.

That location is so good that they'll have to work at it to fail. Of course, several previous attempts have managed to do just that. Wishing them luck.

The construction continues. They are putting a lot of effort and money into this new look. If you haven't been down there in a few weeks go check it out. Doubtful they will be open in October as advertised however maybe November if they keep the pace up. I haven't seen much work on the inside yet though.

They're moving along with the speed of a banana slug climbing up a redwood tree. I'd say December at the earliest.

If you know what it looked like before, imagine large rectangles of something stuck all the way round with a little bit of the roof peak showing behind them.  It will probably get worse when they paint something on those rectangles.  Don't worry, the final result with be an new eyesore, same as the old eyesore.
However, if they serve some good food and drinks, they will be forgiven.....unlike Maria Isobel.......where the building looks better but the food is awful.

They are a long way from completion. I think it will look OK when it is finished.

While the pictures may not do it justice I think this is a huge improvement over what was there. They are doing a superb job considering they were not allowed to alter the original structure. Yes it is "lipstick on a pig" but high quality lipstick and a bit of perfume. They are even putting in new light standards all along the pier. They are sinking some serious cash into this.

I appreciate your optimism, CBob, but this just hurts my eyes. It is so ugly, so very, very ugly.
Perhaps I lack imagination. I just can not see this ending up as any sort of "improvement" over the original building.
I hope I am proved wrong.
