Well actually, after the closure of venerable Kingsville institution the Famous Blue Raincoat there will be … more Famous Blue Raincoat.
In the short-term anyway.
Meet Andy, the Newport local whose family is taking over the Vernon Street premises.
They hope to open in about a week.
There’s no great overhaul going on – just a spring clean of sorts that will take in a spruce-up of the lovely garden area out back.
A rebranding of sorts is likely to take place early next year.
The food offered will stay solidly in the cafe format but with a few Andy tweaks along the way – an emphasis on nifty salads instead of fried food, for instance.
I spy a pork burger on the dummy menu Andy lets me examine.
All such goodies as relishes and sauces will be made in-house.
The new/old joint will be open six or maybe seven days a week but not at nights.
There is a strong likelihood, however, of there being some night action along the lines of monthly theme nights of four or six courses with matching beer or wine.
