No I should have explained myself better. The nasty signs can be found around the property NO TRESPASSING!

Anything happening with this restaurant? I thought contractors would be mobilizing this month to begin site/foundation work?

Value engineering happened.  Had to get approval of a minor modification from the historic preservation commission.

Just curious if they have a contractor on board, a NTP date?

Not only has construction begun, but the BUZZ continues to grow. Brian posts on MJ from time to time. We are very happy for him and the progress being made on the Restaurant in Avondale. Should be yet another great draw for the neighborhood.

This restaurant will be a nice addition to the neighborhood.

Does that corner/strip have a moniker?

Wow, a little surprised. It seems like odd timing given the holidays. They also mentioned that the one in Nocatee is under different ownership (not sure if they mean the restaurant or the building).

This one always struck me as odd....it was started by Brian Siebenschuh, who was the Executive chef at Orsay. Crazy to open a new restaurant right next door to where you were the executive chef.

Maybe they're working on a new concept.

Their price point being next to Orsay was a bit odd. I think a neighborhood concept with a simplified menu could work. Also, a Southern Grounds/Roost concept would do well too.

We didn't go in there a ton, but the few times over the last year or so I went it just seemed... off.  I think it was a bunch of little factors that added up and made this news not surprising.  Food was a little pricey for what you got.  Atmosphere inside always seemed weird to me.  Service not horrible but not the best.  Etc.

I'm sure something else will come into that space though.  Tons of potential there.  Bearded Pig Avondale?

I only went once, a couple of years ago. Restaurants come and go but the building is a pretty nice one. I'm sure it won't be empty for long.
