Drove past Carbon Bar (same owners as Nota Bene) and it seems to be open (yes it is according to their facebook page)..
According to sources they pumped 3 million into renovations in this place. It is 99 Queen St E just east of Church. And the place looks like they spent a ton of money in the photos on their site. It is not the most desirable area it will be interesting the crowd they attract, Nota Bene seems to be a suit crowd but not many offices at Queen and Church.
Here is a sample of their rmenu:
"From the wood fire pit"
PORK RIBS 18
BEEF BRISKET 18
PULLED PORK & JALEPENO SAUSAGE 18
PIT MASTER PLATTER 29
everything from the pit
GOAT RIBS 16
Plus the usual burger ($19) rest of the menu here: http://thecarbonbar.ca/menus
Will have to see how they stack up to the blooming BBQ scene in Toronto..
