Carmelita is remodeling and adding a bar, and they were giving away one of those awful chairs for free out front. Hopefully they'll get rid of all the chairs and generally spruce up the place.


And when they are done adding the bar a little birdie told me they are working on adding seafood to the menu.

Did the birdie tell you about any other changes? New chef?


This is just up the hill from my house and I want to like it more than I do. I'm fine with a veggie menu, but it seems like everything could be a little better than it is. The decor and stupid 1980s Moosewood Cafe chairs didn't help either.
