That site has a lot of visibility but at 1359 sq ft. Is it bigger than the current location across from Hanes Park?

Saw in the Journal that the Miami's Cafe Brookstown Ave. @ Broad St. (the previous long time home of Rainbow News & Cafe) has been sold for just over $500,000. Anyone have an idea what's going in there?

I still miss Rainbow. We used to walk there on Sundays, buy an NYT and continue down to Ollie’s for a baguette and a fugasse. So happy that Camino carried on there (though their baguette has really fallen off). A New iteration of Rainbow would be amazing!

Let us not forget Peter Tork quietly enjoying a meal undisturbed at the Rainbow News & Cafe.

Unfortunately, the original 1892 windows were trashed for cheap-o replacements several years ago - the dark-stained woodwork was painted, and the entire building was entombed in nauseous tan vinyl. The vintage charm that was the Rainbow is sadly lost.

And speaking of entombed . . . there is, reportedly, the skeleton of a horse beneath the floorboards of one of the dining rooms. It has been there a very long time.

Great feature article in the WS Journal about the new Downtown Grille opening at 500 W 4th. Sounds like the guys running it really have it together, the decor looks smart, and the dishes delectable!

I hope it does really well, with the support of Don Flow...

The restaurant offers the classic steakhouse wedge salad with bacon and blue-cheese dressing ($14). The lone soup is roasted squash and apple ($13).

The steaks are limited to ribeye, N.Y. strip and filet mignon. The ribeye is available in a 14-ounce portion for $54 or a 22-ounce bone-in serving for two — dry-aged for 35 days — for $80. There’s lobster tail, alone or in a surf and turf with a filet, as well as lamb loin and bone-in pork chop.

Other entrees include a North Carolina crabcake ($44), steak burger ($18), fresh pasta ($24) and Atlantic salmon ($34).

A vegetarian plate ($29) features risotto, Piave cheese and local mushrooms.

Sides ($11 to $12) include roasted broccolini; buttermilk mashed potatoes; flash-fried Brussels sprouts; glazed carrots; and frites with truffle salt, rosemary and grated Piave.

There are three desserts ($10 to $12): a molten chocolate cake with Homeland Creamery ice cream, crème brulee and pistachio éclair.


I don't know of anyone other than Don Flow who can afford to support it.

:shock:

Yikes, super expensive! Suitable for the corporate expense account set, I guess. Boo.

I don't expect everyone to want to pay budget prices for fine dining. The cost of running any type of business, let alone a restaurant is super challenging. That aside, we want Winston to have better amenities, and better choices for everything ( aka Ruth Chris's or Cheesecake Factory, which are highly overrated), so all options cannot be burger bar, pizza, tacos, or diner food. Some people in the Winston-Salem market have the money to spend, and want exceptional and farm raised/local foods.

It may be pricey, but it’s important that the city, especially downtown, have fine dining options. It feels good to occasionally have a swanky or elegant dining experience in our city. We shouldn’t have to go out of town to feel siddity.
