Coming Soon - Elmwood Eateries
We're still waiting for Bombay Olive to open on New Britain Avenue on teh corner of South Main Street. They've been working on it a while, and it certainly looks like it's getting ready to open. They seem to have put some money into the exterior (signage and stuff) and we've seen positive write-ups about other locations - so looking forward to having anotehr Indian option.....
Meanwhile, in the old McDonald's location (in the Shield Street Plaza, where A Dong is located), a new restaurant named Cora Cora is getting ready to open. A few months ago I saw "Coming Soon: CORA CORA" painted on the whitewashed side of the building (as if with a paint roller). Minimal renovations (a coat of yellow paint, really) hardly disguise the fast food origins. The drive through windows are still in place. But there is a nice sign on the window, the place seems to have been cleaned up, and tradesperson trucks are in the parking lot most days. Will be interesting to see what this turns out to be.
