For a very long time, the restaurant space at 314 Broadway E. was completely abandoned, with tables, chairs, and (probably haunted) salt and pepper shakers that got left behind. Olmstead transformed the whole place into a huge, fun restaurant with a back bar, hand-shuffleboard, and a menu full of sandwiches and snacks. There are a lot of misses on the menu, but there are some things we’d order again—like pork nuggets with tonnato (which taste great but are soggy) and rum-spiked shots of pistachio pudding with Nilla wafers and Lucky Charms marshmallows.
