Per The Huntsville Times, restaurateur David Martin is planning a shopping center in west Huntsville. The 11,000 square-foot center will be on Enterprise Way and Moore Farm Lane, just north of Rime Village Drive, adjacent to the SuperTarget center.

David Martin owns Blue Plate Cafe, Rosie's, and founded the Steak-Out chain.

Yay, my street can get even more crowded in with traffic. Will this city ever learn you can't just keep jamming in shops where there are already shops?

Concentrating shops on designated corridors is more responsible than typical sprawl

That's going to be nice. It looks like it's going to be something similar to Steak N' Shake and/or Cheeburger Cheeburger and even Johnny Rockets.

Seems like the vast majority of restaurants opening in the vicinity of the research park serve mainly
1. burgers
2. chicken tenders/wings
3. deli sandwiches

Is this all tech types eat? Surely people want other selections, too. And they're always chains, too. UGH.

What's wrong with chains? Being a chain necessarily means inferior food when compared to a mom and pop?

The majority of restaurants opening in the vicinity of research park are likely to be those places where the tech types can get a quick lunch.

I don't think that the food quality is inferior. Chains are just boring. You can get the same food at the same chains all over the nation. I like variety and interesting local places. I'll go to a chain occasionally--In fact, I went to Five Guys two weeks ago

When I first moved here a co-worker started telling me about all the great restaurants that he loved to go to in Huntsville. O'Charleys, Bennigans (gone) Logan's, Ruby Tuesday, etc. Granted he did mention Rosie's and one of those country places (the lady died recently, maybe Eunice?) but, basically, I had all those same places where I came from.

Well, I'll give it a try. I'm interested in this thing that is, "not an enchilada and it's not a burrito. It's something in between." HAHAHAHAHA!!!

Also, the signature gravy. That will do wonders for the waistlines in Research Park.
