The Abbey Burger Bistro is lookin' good

duvelFriday night a few friends and I dropped by the new Abbey Burger Bistro for a drinky-poo, and were pleasantly surprised with owner Russell Miller's changes.

The exposed brick walls really open up the space, and Miller's decision to put the bathrooms along the far back wall was a good one.

I had a delicious bottle of Duvel, and my friend Greg had a micro-brew with a funky name I can't remember offhand. Our tab came to $13, which is acceptable for two fancy beers.

The bartender didn't know much about the beers they had, but that's OK, considering the bar wasn't even fully stocked yet. I'll give it a little time to find its footing before going back for an official review.

Abbey Bistro is looking good. Russ did a great job with the renovations; I really hope his endeavor is a success.

I received news today that Abbey Bistro is now serving a full menu of food with the kitchen open until midnight daily.
