  • Agave y Agucate at 35 Baldwin Street supposedly opens tonight, Thursday December 12th, though Facebook suggests that the new year is more likely. I'm happy to eat my words... if I can chase them with tacos anyway.

Sounds like Agave y Aguacate is having a soft opening now but officially opening in January.

I'm hoping Harvest Kitchen is good, as I live around the corner from it! I never visited Tati when it was there (due to bad looking reviews) but a casual-dining restaurant on the Harbord strip sounds great to me!

Why did Alternative Grounds close? Did it have to do with the hike in coffee competition and rent? Was it just the end of an era with the owners? What's the scoop?
