Restaurant Makeover 1

I’m not sure if you’ve ever watched the show “Restaurant Makeover“, but I saw one of the show’s Chefs David Adjey last night standing outside a bar located beside my work building. This morning I peeked in the bar and saw the Restaurant Makeover team ripping the guts out of the it. The bar is called “Waterfall Lounge”; it has appeared very run-down since I started working here a year ago, so it looks like it’s getting a well-deserved makeover.

If you haven’t seen the show, the premise is that they have one week to renovate, revamp and re-launch local restaurants. When I walked by today at lunch it looked like they had 30 people working in there. I guess you would need a lot of people to completely rebuild a restaurant in only a week.

A quick search on Google revealed that the Restaurant Makeover team is turning it into an Upscale, New York style Martini Lounge and Restaurant.

If the crowd is good, it might become our new after-work bar to replace Alice Fazooli’s.

    i always worry that with so little time to get a place ready, if you were to go there a month later, you were likely to have huge chunks of drywall or cornices falling in your drink… but we’ll see, i suppose. and there is no replaceing alice F’s… ah, the (drunken) (half-)memories!
