Long Beach is quickly becoming the City (by the sea) that never sleeps. So much transition going on with development, food and more food. The following is an incomplete list, but here are a few things happening around town:
Long Beach Diner is Dead. Long live Long Beach Diner! I instagrammed like a month or two ago how the rumor was Greek. Well, here ya go. I do miss the blue facade, but white is better than beige. Always. I cannot wait to try the food!
My unpaid intern Richard Boodman keeps sending me updates on Steven’s Pasta. The latest includes the windows being painted with the restuarant name. You can tell those LB DOMS are excited for some pasta.
We are all desperately waiting for Island Thyme (780 West Beech St) to finally open. Based on their facebook page, it seems like they will really soon! I cannot wait because their menu looks beyond awesome. www.islandthymelbny.com.menu
Annnd Beech Street is getting a place called Breakers Bowls (1048 W. Beech Street) (breakersbowls.com). All organic acai bowl, smoothie and coffee shop! You can also follow their progress on facebook: www.facebook.com/breakersbowls
These Luxury Apartments are on the corner of Lindell and W. Broadway. Expect the neighboring houses to be converted into them as well. I am not here to complain about parking, living in a shadow, losing a water view, etc. If you want to, then go right ahead. I’m just happy to seem some interesting architecture happening. These are funky. I kinda like it.
