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.
I mean this in the nicest way, I will starve before going to Brier Creek. https://t.co/FrmOxogzkh

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.
