Has anyone been to this new restaurant?
I saw a review about it on Trip Advisor. Just opened on July 18th.
It's on Strand street. Is it where Zebo's used to be?

It is where Alley Galley used to be, under the Commanche Hotel bar at the end of Strand Street next to Kings Alley. Todd & Erica are the proprietors....they know what they are doing. I can't wait to try it.

Really, they must be keeping it a secret! Have not heard or read on thing about any new restaurant. But, regardless, it is good news.

What's the name of it?

Thanks Beeski for the info.
Can you eat inside? Is this just a carryout place?
Nice to hear of something new.
Hope they do well.

You could have walked back around an hour later. I got a sandwich with no line--it was pretty damn good for a free sandwich. Do you ever have anything nice to say? I can't imagine you being this unpleasant in person. Look out your window!!! That is what I do when I want to be a cranky jerk on the internet. Punch a teddy bear. It is ok!!!!

I did not find speed1dy's post to be negative and find you calling it out to be uncalled for and way more negative than anything I have ever seen her post. Talk about cranky jerk! Good grief! Hopefully, you are not involved with management or ownership.

Menu looks great tho.

Speedy has plenty of nice things to say, it appears to me she was just making an observation.
We walked by and I chose not to try the new food, nobody else was. Perhaps I'll try it next time.
Lighten up there sweetie/TheSandlers, no need for punching your teddy bear here ... we are a friendly people 🙂

Edited to correct the misspelling of "TheSlanders" to "TheSandlers" ... darn that autocorrect 😉

Had dinner there this weekend with friends. The food was delicious. The place was packed but it thinned out as time went on. Service friendly and good.

The room could use some noise reducing material as it was very loud. Maybe curtains or panels. Also, it was overly warm in the room despite a/c being on. Add another a/c unit??
