Newsy Nuggets

Ava opens, a wine shop returns, new tenant in previous Marlow’s, and a brawl at the buffet.

Ava MediterrAgean, the restaurant that has taken about the Luma on Park place, officially opens now, Feb. 4. But if Thursday evening’s preview celebration was any sign, I’d give them some time to get acclimated. I’m thinking maybe August.

Thursday’s party was intended to be from 6 to 9 p.m. with some sort of a presentation for media at 6. About 20 minutes after 6, a huge crowd was continue to queued up on the sidewalk in front of the freshly renovated restaurant and were not staying enable in. If there was a presentation or announcement, I didn’t listen to it. My only guess for the hold off was that it was a South Beachy type of method to convey exclusivity. I’d appreciate to convey to you what the position appeared like at the time I acquired in but there were so several men and women crammed inside of that I couldn’t get a superior seem or photograph.

1 observation: those awful computerized bathroom doors have been replaced with types you have to pull to open.

Meals, wine and cocktails ended up remaining handed around, but I bolted.
