I agree, Cman.

Assumed room temperature today.  Word around the campfire is what tanks every other restaurant: “cash flow issues”.

Sorry to see it go and it was rather sudden.

They seemed to rely heavily on their Facebook page and little else.  I believe they did some fund-raisers for local charities and participated in the sort of events where you donate food product.  FB is great for your regular followers but doesn’t get your name and product in front of new customers. 

The owner was a veteran of the McNellies Group so he’s worked within very successful restaurant business models.  Only thing is, with a location like that, you have to do plenty of advertising, then once you get people in the door, you’ve got to hit your marks on the food with every single plate to keep them coming back.

My husband and I only went there one time. It was a little on the pricey side for us and we were not impressed enough to return.

I still miss St. Mike's.

I miss St. Mikes....a lot.  We would make that an event in high school whenever could get enough money together at one time (mid to late 60's and through 70's).  Not sure I could even get in one of the booths today, but it was very cool then.  Changed a lot in the 80's and didn't go as often, but was still pretty good.  Always enjoyed it greatly.

That's too bad.  Tough spot in which to create a brand with its lack of visibility and neighboring restaurants.  Even with his built-in following, Rick's couldn't make it in that location.

Not really, but have a couple of half cent coins (5 mill) left over from the "good old days".... actually inherited them.

As opposed to one of those conservative, "we don't serve your kind" sort of places.

Not really.  We saw all types and it seemed really diverse.  Older couples, locally and nationally-known celebrities, some younger hipster types, and middle agers like MC and I.  I ran into many of my old schoolmates there.
