Name the new restaurant in Harbor East

Our craigslist guru, turkeybone, has another gem for us. I'm guessing it's the space vacated  by Tsunami, but someone out there may know better. If so, please post below. Here's the ad he found. As turkeybone said, "4 million in sales... that sounds like a pretty large deal." I wonder if Bruce Allen has seen this. EL

Please tell me that the interstitial ad I just saw was an anomaly. It's a deal breaker for me.

Think how I feel. I have to be on the site all the time. EL

The new sign at Tsunami has been up for awhile. Although the new one word name escapes me now, I imagined it had more a Spanish sound to it.

And I suppose some here might debate if its really "HarborEast."

No matter, I'm looking forward to it. I loved Tsunami, and I think all of Gavin's places are terrific.

Tsumani's space has been taken by a place called Diablo(something) Cute sign with a tail and pitchfork..looks like its going to be Mexican tapas. And it would take a lot of cojones to call Central Ave "Harbor East". There's space in the new Legg Mason buidings that could hold a ground level restaurant.

FLIRV, I'm guessing its not the Legg Mason or Four Seasons. I haven't heard "boo" about those spaces getting a lease, and if they were already hiring, I think it would have gotten around that those spaces were occupied.

Is there anything open in the Bagby Furniture Bldg? I think that pizza place is open (finally!)

Check that. My rumor monger says that there is a rumor that a group from New York is coming down to fill the first floor of the Legg Mason building on the water side.

bagby pizza isn't opening till next tuesday. i'll be there. =)

I'll feel disloyal to Isabella's, but it's nice to have options, Matt.

diabilita is the new restaurant in the mustang alley building...from the folks at red star....

"Candidate must possess above average knowledge of Italian and Mediterranean cuisine ...
I'm thinking about that interesting Katyn monument in the middle of Harbor East and wondering whether anyone would have the courage to open an Eastern European restaurant. around there. Even I remember the days when Polish was the primary language people living in Canton.

I just heard from a friend it is Milan, again

I walked by both Milan and Diabolita (I think it was...) yesterday. Both not open yet, but definitely getting there (Diabolita looks much closer than Milan, most likely since it was so recently upgraded for the purposes of Tsunami).

As far as Polish food goes...I swung by Sophia's Place in the north building of Broadway Market a couple of days ago to get some delicious smoked sausage. It saddens me to see the mostly vacant market building but I was cheered up by the positive attitude of the woman at Sophia's counter who liberally let me taste before I bought. Please support this place!

the old Tsunami space is actually called "Diablita Cantina"

Tsunami was certainly not in Harbor East. Before you know it, Canton will be called Harbor East Extended. Or Harbor East East. Or East of Harbor East.

Shill at 2:41 PM! (No matter how many times RZ tries to post, it's always trying to shill the same useless website.)

Michael S, I vote for Harbor East East (soon to be known as HEE).

I kind of like EOHE.

Harbor East East Landing?

Thanks for the link, Hon! "La Cantina Mas Fina"? I hope we aren't supposed to be drawing a parallel to Corona, the Budweiser of Central America.

More importantly, I hope this place serves up that mild, white cheese dip and makes their own flour tortillas! Our Tex Mex offerings need a serious upgrade in this city. Federales or DC better deliver :D

Milana's - 1000 Eastern Avenue !
