Umpteenth Time’s a Charm

Come on, Capitol City Grill. You can do it!

Capitol City Grill is the latest to take a stab at the former La Paloma / Bacciame / Eighth Street Ironworks / Magnolia / etc. building in the Haymarket. Why is that building so deadly to restaurants? And more specifically, why is that building so deadly to some awfully good restaurants? (I still yearn for the meatloaf I had at Eight Street Ironworks days before it shut down.) I don’t get it. Is it because most Haymarket patrons park or enter to the south and they just never make it that far north? Goofy lease terms? Some sort of intangible bad juju?

I’m still in mourning for Magnolia.

I hope this is good - I’m always excited about trying something new. Personally, I wasn’t impressed with Magnolia. I didn’t find their food consistently good - some items were good, some weren’t, side dishes were not good, etc.

I liked Magnolia as well, and it was very vegetarian friendly. I especially liked their veggie gravy on the Sunday brunch.

Mr. Wilson, you forgot Brazenhead in your list smile

Nuts! I knew I was forgetting at least one.
