Its facade now shrouded in plywood, the long-planned restaurant project at 114 S. 12th St. is due to open in mid to late May.
And it has a new name -- Tweed -- and a tweaked concept.
When I told you about it last November, its working name was Cafe Maurice and the idea had a French twist.
But now Tweed's focus is, in its rep's words, "to bring the country to the city with fresh, organic and local ingredients in a modern, intimate setting." The building, known for its grand staircase and twin balconies, previously housed Les Bons Temps, TPDS, Odeon, and Bistro Bix.
