Omnivore - Bad news about Rare and Midtown Tavern
Here's some bad news via an email from "Kali": "Rare restaurant on Piedmont burned down last night, apparently, and took some of the Midtown Tavern with it. (Which is a shame because the MT was one of those bars that actually cared about having decent food on its menu, and pretty much succeeded.)"
Rare was a charming space that served soul-food tapas. I haven't been able to get the full story yet, but I hope they'll be able to rebuild.
