I never thought super high end was a good fit for Midtown. Not to say we don't have wealthy people living here, but those kinds of stores benefit from being part of a larger concentration of like establishments, a la Phipps/Lenox/SOB.

"High end shopping districts" have been done to death. That's soooo 2006.

Sure it'd be nice to have some dive bars further south in Midtown that aren't homogenized chains but w/ still relatively high rents, I wouldn't expect many to be successful. Honestly, I haven't stopped and thought about the difficulty of finding a beer since moving to Midtown given there's a decent selection of places available. I'd definitely still love to see more down near 7th St area since I don't make the walk up to 12th all that often.

Worse thing to ever happen was the closing of McCray's...

It would be nice to have an upscale grocery/take a away place for us singles who cannot/ will not/or should not cook somewhere on the midtown mile or on one of the side streets.

There really are a ton of places if you know the areas.
I was walking by there tonight and this opened. I am surprised. There is already a Five Guys at 10th & Northside.
