Here’s a better shot of the building they’ll be in:
My understanding is that they will start the buildout sometime in May with hopes to open in May (though it’s pretty raw inside right now); my guess it’s going to be more like early summer, just in time for their fancy iced and blended coffee drinks, fruity Rockstar coolers, among others.
Black Rock is just one of at least three possible retail tenants for this building; I’ll be curious to see what else opens up there.
It’s time to bring back this old chestnut—the top five posts on Bridgetown Bites in January 2019.

Anyway, here are the five posts you read most often this past month; and thanks to Eater and Reddit for the traffic.

What’s going in there is anyone’s guess, but I hope it’s going to be something good for the neighborhood; there’s also a possibility that they are simply cleaning it up for the sake of cleaning it up. I’ll keep an eye on it.

It seemed odd, but I thought perhaps they were replacing old service dishes with new ones. Well, I was wrong—Eater has the details. Mio Sushi is gone, BiBim Bap House will open on March 19.
