Common? Anything But

I paid a quick visit to the new tapas lounge/restaurant Common last night, in the Austin St. mall, and, while we did not stick around to have anything to eat or drink, we were quite impressed with the upscale look of the venue that they have created. We were especially surprised to discover that they have actually created a garden in the back (who knew the Austin mall even had an open air space back there? I certainly didn’t!) where you can dine and where they will soon have a full bar. The staff, all of whom were very friendly and welcoming, said they will be rolling out their full menu in the coming week. Until then, you can feast your eyes on these pictures:

    I was wondering why such a small space was taking so long to open as it seems they were renovating for at least a year – that garden space certainly answers the question. It looks like someone made quite an investment on Austin St. and Forest Hills. I wonder if the owner is someone with other restaurants in the area? I can’t wait to try it and I wish them a lot of luck.

    Just wanted to mention that I’m thrilled I found your blog. You’re doing a truly excellent job covering the happenings around Forest Hills …. and I’ve officially bookmarked your site!

    I’m glad to hear that Common looks like it may be a ‘winner’.
