The Abbey Burger Bistro replaces Sky Lounge
Looks like the long, troubled Sky Lounge saga has finally come to a close.
Starting tonight, that space will be The Abbey Burger Bistro, an upscale burger joint run by former Ryleigh's Oyster manager Russell Miller.
The bar will have a scaled back, drinks-only soft opening tonight, and should start serving lunch and dinner Monday Nov. 17.
Miller spearheaded a pretty thorough renovation of the place, which included tearing out all the drywall to reveal the exposed brick walls, opening up a couple bricked-in windows, and installing a wood floor and bar upstairs.
"It turned out nice," Miller said. "It's got an older feel, with a little more character."
Miller has big plans for the drink list ...
The Abbey will also stock about 30 wines, ranging from $6 a glass to $40-$50 a bottle.
Sun Food Empress Elizabeth Large will post all the details about The Abbey's burger selection on her blog, Dining@Large.
The Abbey is at 1041 Marshall St. The main number is 443-453-9698, but that will change in the next few days. I'll post the new number and the Web site, when they go into effect.
