Looks like something new is moving into the St. Clair West neighborhood..
Was walking between Arlington and Atlas today and noticed that the old Portucale (the old Dagianni et maria ) restaurant was covered in black tiles and had a printed peice of paper with the name "The Crest Gastro Bar" taped inside the window.
There were some people inside talking (who knows if it was contractors/owners/chef..but could see inside. Looked great from what i coudl see. Nice new bar. a couple of large reclaimed wood tables.
I wonder if anyone has any info on this - ie who is it? what makes it gastro? etc?
With Stazione opened up and the Pipers Pub seeming to draw a resonable crowd, lets hope this stretch of St. Clair keeps the tradition of the east side of Arlington going!
Cant' wait to it opens so we can find out!
