At least two new awnings have appeared in the restaurant wasteland between Thomas Beisel and the recent forays from the west of Bacchus and Downtown Atlantic. I just noted a new purple awning in the storefront that was the recently closed second hand store near Hank's Tavern, just off 3rd on Atlantic. The resto is named Stir It Up. I think it said will serve Soul Food.
And on the corner of 3rd and Dean, a new fancy awning over the small storefront that housed a series of failed no name Halal takeouts. The awning says Allegro: Fine Mediteranean food. We'll see.
