AU REVOIR???

BREAKING

UPDATE: CONFIRMED- The ten year run is over. Au Bon Pain is closing down in the REGJB today. They were already out of salads, and coffee. A new mysterious establishment will be opening up in several weeks (read new year? perhaps) as per our sources in the Administrative Judicial chambers.  And no, there is no chance for Cazzolis or The Pickle Barrel returning.

Several unsubstantiated rumors have been circulating that Friday October 16, 2016 will be the LAST DAY of operations for Au Bon Pain.

Bad coffee. Good Cuban coffee. Fair food. Won't get you very far in life these days.

More when we know it.

Sir Kenny W. Is proud to announce that he is bringing back the "PICKLE BARREL" ....

He will make it delicious and a destination restaurant to the stars. Open late. VIP room for private diners. The best chicken parm this side of Hialeah. Colby's dog will be dressed in a Zegna tux and will seat the VIP's swiftly. The rest will wait for hours ....

The REN (a venue) is in negotiations with the county to lease Au Bon Pain's space.

Is Real Former Judge Colby's dog named "Roy" -- like the original Maitre'd at Joe's?

Can you stop the REN comments, they could not be more lame.

Also, bring back the pickle barrel.

I was wondering how long it would be before someone said that stupidly named establishment would be taking over. Congrats - you were the second comment!

The Pickle Barrel was the best. Good riddance to Au Bon Pain.......

ABP is being replaced by something called "Off the Grill."

I love that southwestern tuna wrap. They always used to make for me special in the back. Extra chipotle mayo hold the onions. Now what am I going to do ?

I loved the pickel barrel!

Fake Kenny said...

I mean I eat like six of those suckers a week. Best deal in town. Wrap chips soda &6.99 plus tax and you can always grab two bags of chips because no one is looking and of course free refills on the Diet Coke at the soda fountain. My lunches are ruined. Now what ?

Off The Grill is great. Best plantain chips in town. They run the student cafeterias at Miami Dade Community College. Great fish sandwiches and wraps. Be optimistic!!!!

We want the Pickle Barrel back.

I googled "off the grill." Yikes!! Bring back Cozzoli's.

The Professor said...

Cozzoli's!! Now that was food. Georgie and the greasy potatoes with your eggs. Picadillo and rice on Tuesdays. Yummy.

Good morning Hectir Lombuttna. Read it and weep. You cannot tackle two Miami Dolphins from the perfect season.

Ex-Dolphins Nathan, Newman still a ‘good team’

The Pickle Barrel arrived after Lindy's closed in the Farmer's Market after the Market Connection case. Jewish lawyers and Judges still need a place to "Fress."
God help us if Versailles or El Palacio de los Jugos teams up with Starbucks at the REG bldg.
Next thing you know there'll be a Michael Kors shop for KFR and the lady Judges or maybe an Apple store.
I can see it all now. Maybe convert the jail into a shopping mall.
