So it's possibly something else? I'm sure we'll find out in the next few days.

It could be taking the place of the Chinese hole in the wall that finally closed, on Taylor just behind the Capitol Places apartment building at Main and Taylor. Someone's in there doing something. In fact, that might be where my vague recollection is coming from. If I'm not mistaken I saw an ABL notice in the window there a little while back, and I think I remember pointing it and the name The Olive Grill out to my partner. Don't quote me or hold me to it or even get your hopes up, but I think I'm right. I don't usually forget those things, but so much is happening it's hard to keep it all straight, and new things no longer stand out as much as they did because of all that's going on. That's a good problem to have: expecting to see new stuff to the point that after you see it, it gets buried in your mind by other new stuff.

Incidentally, I walked by the Brennan Building yesterday and heard construction workers pounding away inside Bourbon behind the brown paper in the windows.

Default awesome re: Bourbon/ I'm excited about that place

It's funny when people ask me what my favourite restaurant in Columbia is I say Bourbon. And they're like but it hasn't even opened yet. And I'm like but my Rosso love coupled with what the concept is makes me know already that it's my new fave place.

LOL I live on Main and I say the same about that and Cantina! So many times we have walked by both going somewhere and my friends and I are like "ahhh just open already!"

Yes. The Olive Grill plans to open in the former Chinese hole in the wall in December. I confirmed it at First Thursday tonight. I peeked inside past the paper in the windows and some people who appeared to be the proprietors were hard at work.

The State is still writing headlines that give students top billing for The Hub, but this article talks up how the building is for young professionals and anyone else who goes through the lease application process.
