There's a new place that just opened at 30th St. and 35th Ave., Rest-au-Rant.
It used to be "Cafe Blue Light", but is now under new ownership and is completely renovated. It's a wine and beer bar, they have coffee and food. THEY HAVE TAPS! With good beer available!(Guinness, Blue Point, Stella, and others). The wine is terrific. Pints are generally $5.
And... they have NO T.V.'s!! Finally, a bar has the right state of mind to open without wanting a sports crowd.
They play decent music, not too loud. It's all dark wood with a dark wood beam ceiling. Great feel.
They have roughly the same hours as "Locale", they open at 4pm during the weekdays, and 11am/noon on the weekends.
Check it out if you're in need of a new place to try.
