    this would be awesome! Hope everything goes through smoothly and quickly

    Nice. Good guy, great work ethic and solid food. Fairmount would love to have him back.

  • William Rhodes

    This will be very small. I wish him luck, I love McCrossen’s and this would be closer for me, but it’s a small space with what is likely a high rent and no liquor license.
