The Scoop: New Restaurant in the Heights

Last fall we reported (with glee) that there was to be a new restaurant in the neighborhood in the space that was formerly Vines on Pine.  Since then we've been stalking the storefront, trying to find a peephole in the brown paper that was covering the glass windows.  We were even pouring over the work orders, trying to decipher something...anything!

Well, Thursday was our lucky day.  The sun was bright, the air was balmy.  As we walked to Buunni (Must. Have. Salted. Caramel. Latte) suddenly we noticed that the door to 209 Pinehurst Ave was open!  Work was going on inside!

A glimpse at what is soon to be the Rusty Mackerel

Then we were lucky enough to meet Chef James "Mac" Moran who gave us a few tantalizing details on the restaurant, to be called The Rusty Mackerel.  It will specialize in Mediterranean style small plates - ideal for sharing and sampling a wide range of flavors.  The restaurant will feature a chef's table reserved for tasting menus.  Expect an excellent wine menu as Christian from Vines on Pines is heading that up. A spring opening is planned.

Counting the days...
