Boylan’s Back In Town

EXCLUSIVE: Boylan Bridge Brewpub is back. Thanks to Sara and Chris Abernethy, who became the new owners about a month and a half ago, the brewpub will be making some changes.

Here’s a look at the new menu that comes out this week.

We’re told that most of the beers have been re-engineered. They’ll open at 11:00 am for lunch instead of noon. They’re also looking into adding music on the deck.

We did some investigative journalism to determine they have a new Instagram account: @boylanbrewpub. We’re not the only ones looking forward to checking out the new menu.

Hotel Company Buys Downtown Firestone Property

Downtown Raleigh’s Firestone auto shop on South Dawson is now in the hands of local hotel developer Winwood Hospitality.

The firm purchased the .8 acre parcel on November 1 for $6 million from Firestone’s parent company Bridgestone. The property has been home for nearly 60 years to auto-related businesses.

Winwood Hospitality told the Triangle Business Journal that they had no immediate plans for redevelopment due to the influx of new hotels in downtown Raleigh. Current zoning will allow them to build up to 20 stories tall.

We cannot confirm if Winwood has any ties to pop-legend Steve Winwood. After seeing a chance and taking it, it seems the firm could be back in the high life again if they decide to roll with it on another hotel project. You’re welcome.


Cava Mezze To Replace Noodles In Cameron Village

Shareholders of Noodles & Company can’t be happy after seeing the news that the Cameron Village location of Noodles & Co. is closed. Even worse, the company tried to retain customers on Twitter by suggesting they drive to Noodles & Co. locations in Brier Creek or Cary. It did not go over well.

Fortunately, Cava Mezze is moving into the space in Cameron Village. Cava Mezze is a sister restaurant of Cava Mezze Grill, that we covered earlier this year, which is coming to SoJo (Midtown East).

The sit-down restaurant version of the fast-casual Cava chain offers similar menus that include classic Mediterranean ingredients like lamb, hummus, falafel, yogurt, and more.

Permits were issued last week to Battino Contracting Solutions out of Virginia for the renovation of the space at 403 Daniels Street.


Cameron Village Holiday Open House

Cameron Village’s annual Holiday Open house is this Thursday, November 15 from 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm. This open house has something for everyone; REAL snow, a ferris wheel, music, magicians, giveaways, and a special appearance from Santa Claus.


Executive Apartments Open On North Boylan

Revisn has officially opened for business on North Boylan.

Revisn claims to combine “the comforts of luxury apartment living with the services and amenities of a high-end hotel for extended stay guests.” Revisn’s 48 one and two-bedroom units will boast “fully-equipped kitchens with GE appliances, modern, designer furnishings by Yannis (or is it Laurel?), 4K SmartTVs in the living room and each bedroom.”

Seaboard Wine Holds Official Grand Opening

Seaboard Wine held their grand opening at High Park over the weekend. The celebration featured a free wine tasting, door prizes, discounts, free snacks and free wine totes for the first 50 customers.
