I have been hounding the people handling press for the new restaurant going in at the old Acacia spot at St. Philip’s Plaza, and I think it might be just about to pay off. It sounds like something might be released in the not-too-distant future.
So for the time being, these tidbits will have to do: It’s not exactly a gastropub, although its resemblance to one has not been overtly denied. It will be called Union, although that means nothing without further context. They’ve ripped out the entire interior and stuffed it in the Dumpster, which has been overflowing with construction waste all 569 times I’ve stopped by to peek in the windows.
And whoever is opening the place is super tight-lipped about it, because when it comes to hounding people for information, I’m the houndiest, and nobody’s talking. Yet.
I’ll let you know when I learn more.
