This is how the Famoso pizza ovens look. A cool combination of classic design and modern tech. they are the centrepiece of their open kitchen.

I've been told by the owner that the oven will be in green in white tile, no need to explain why..

They have the right attitude. The will all draw/keep people downtown and will feed off each other.

Almost without exception, the downtown pubs & restaurants are supportive of each other (e.g. retweeting, mentioning each other's events, etc), but many take it a step further... I routinely see staff & management from one establishment hanging out at "competitors'" businesses. They realize there's a lot of room for growth, and getting a critical mass of businesses is critical to the collective survival & prosperity.

Compare & contrast a certain restaurateur on Albert trying to monopolize & drive competition out (even reaching into Cathedral & using status as a landlord to squeeze out businesses that are taking the spotlight away from his establishments).

Better yet, it's too bad they didn't resurrect the old "north Keg" on Hamilton St. between Dewdney & 8th. That was a beautiful warehouse setting...would be perfect for a Keg, an Old Spaghetti Factory, or something of that ilk...does anyone know what's in there now? And what about the old Delbert's beside it? Thanks

Famoso's new entrance punched into Hill Tower 2.

Beer Bros are redoing their entrance as it was looking fairly worn. Need to keep up with all the new places!

Things got awkward when they filmed the next segments of the "date night" ad at Love Plus and the Empire Hotel.

Not entirely related to the downtown pub and restaurant scene... but related to the feel of downtown... I had to do some errands downtown yesterday and it actually felt fairly busy/alive on the streets. Usually weekends are a little slower (especially when the farmers' market isn't on the square), but yesterday was surprisingly active. Could be a bit of an offshoot of having more pubs/restaurants... some more stores opening up due to activity, which draws more people in, etc.

Lot Club at 2151 Albert has a new sign and appears to finally be close to opening.

Looks like it will be a nice addition to that section of Albert Street. Awesome! I also like the interior.

There seems to be a real rebirth of this area that used to be very stale and lifeless. With the Lot Club & Bombay Indian Food being added, a set of traffic lights at 14th ave for easier movement for pedestrians, fancy new signage on Richmond Nychuk, the replacement of the dirt lot at 15th & Angus with a new condo building, it's looking a whole lot better there these days. The two eyesore brownfields need addressing now for it to really start to transition into a desirable stretch of road. I'd like to see the Baker Watson building be repainted with some bold colours too. It's a unique building that hides behind the 1990's peachy beige.

Crave K+WB has a brand new food truck on the plaza. the Owner-Manager was saying that they expect to use it for food service at Rebellion Brewery as well.

He also said their business is up with the traffic created by Flip and Victoria's. He expects everyone to downtown to benefit when all the new places open this summer.

They've already used it several times at Rebellion (first time was Mar 14th... they've been there most Thursdays, and usually every couple of weekends): http://twitter.com/cravekwbTRUCK

Sounds like Rebellion is planning more permanent service hook-ups for food trucks (allowing them to shut off their generator, access water, etc), and increasing frequency of trucks (Crave & Smoke's Poutine have been regular fixtures over the past month & a half).
