I was on Stephen Ave and noticed that the huge space that was the big and tall (at 4th St) has a sign that says "BELGO coming soon." I googled Belgo and a Belgian resto in London (UK) popped up. A place in Calgary that sold Belgian frites, mussels and biere... that would be awesome, but this space is really big and I am thinking it might be a nightclub. Belgo is an odd name. Any news?
Also coming soon- the brief life is Myles Avery is over (that was a really weird place- Bodega was sooooo much better, God rest its soul) is gonna be a Moroccan resto called, I think, Casbah. I think this space is perfect for Moroccan- it's the lower level under Cookbook Co (on 11th Ave SW)... I also note that Kit Interior Objects is moving or expanding to what used to be the Danish Canadian Club across the street... with Heavens Fitness completed, the new Vue Cafe, and Big Mountain Coffee around the corner, 11th Ave is getting damn interesting.
Finally I want to put more good words out about Uptown Sushi. I am now going to this place at least twice a week and it continues to amaze. The other day I got two perfect spicy tuna rolls, one avocado roll with just luscious buttery avocado, and two pieces of the most delectable broiled unagi- total bill was $11. And they are now doing pressed sushi there; have not tried it yet but am expecting it will be as perfect and as amazing value as everything they do there. PLEASE patronize this place, 11 and 11 across from the new luxe Co-op.
