Wow, that developed quickly.

Didn't think the restaurant would be ready so soon.

Was very happy to hear a few months ago that Brett left Uptown to head up the new FSCJ café.

Seems like an odd time to open, considering the construction surrounding the building. Nevertheless, glad to see more life along Adams Street.

The article says it's on 20 W Forsyth St. instead of 20 W Adams St.

Yeah, I just walked by yesterday and saw tables starting to go up in the windows.

Looked like progress was being made, but was shocked to hear it was already opening.

Here are some pics from yesterday afternoon.

Building's really starting to look good.

All these individual small businesses with struggle for the most part until we start flooding a compact section of the Northbank with complementary development to create consistent foot traffic and synergy. None of this stuff is rocket science.
