The Egg is Laid, But When Will it Hatch?

January 27, 2011 at 1:45pm By: Mr. Wilson Posted in The Lincolnite Blog

After years out of Lincoln’s eye, Clocktower Shopping Center (70th and A) is making a comeback. Its latest step: The Egg & I, a breakfast and lunch restaurant, appears to be near opening. The tables are up, the interior is lit, the exterior sign is on, and last night there were folks milling around the place. A test run, perhaps?

I’m eager for TE&I to open. I always like new restaurant options (as you know well by now), and breakfast is one of my four favorite meals of the day (they’re all tied for first place). Between this and Grateful Greens, I’m excited for my upcoming meals.

As long as we’re talking about restaurants, are there any other openings around town we should know about?

I walked through Egg and I last week and talked to the GM. He told me that they are shooting for Valentine’s Day weekend for a grand opening.

Clocktower is definitely coming back strong right now. I can tell you that there will be two more restaurants opening there this year after The Egg and I opens.

Woah, two more? I wouldn’t have guessed that. One I could see.

If there are two, that increases the odds that the large, primary space will be turned into a feature restaurant, a la Garden Cafe back in the day. I can think of a few restaurants I would consider putting in there if I were king…

We just moved close to Clocktower. This is good news!

Didn’t there use to be a Long John Silver’s and a Hooters there? Based on my experiences with Egg and I in Colorado, I believe it will be a very nice and popular addition. Hope to see that place turn around.

On the flip side, what happened to Smokehouse Deli?  I noticed there is a new business in their space.  I’m going to miss their smoked wings.

I’m not sure what happened to Smokehouse Deli. I thought I had heard it had moved, but I don’t know to where. I’ll let you know if I hear anything.

Mr. T, you’re thinking of 70th and O. You’re off by a mile.
