Just wanted to alert you to something cool happening over on Franklin and Noble. Le Gamin is having a soft opening with a twist. You order at the their food truck and sit inside the new cafe. Saw a few folks taking advantage of the unique arrangement and may join them! If you are nearby check it out. I think they’ll be a great addition to the hood!

hey heather.

i think i always start this out with, ‘i’m sure you know about this’, but was walking by the construction on noble and franklin and i always look to see what this new bar would eventually be called (sigh), but there was a new sign up saying that it was going to be a restaurant with outdoor seating!?

point gree cafe inc.
le gamin

that’s what i know.

This is very interesting Alex. And lest you are wondering ,yes, I did notice 108 Franklin was getting a facelift. On January 20, to be precise.

The funny thing is I don’t recall seeing a notice for a liquor license hearing— scheduled for January 12, 2010— when I walked by. Your commentary suggests this document is a new addition.

Sure enough, there it is. After the fact. Hmm.

A liquor license + “outdoor backyard seating” located amid residential property + without proper noticeĀ  = this will be interesting.

P.S.: I have brought this to the attention of our Community Board. What is the point of having such an entity, the ostensible voice of the people, when the community (READ: the people Franklin Street) is not aware it’s about to be saddled with another “eating and drinking establishment”? Probably one more than it would care to have already.
