The wait is finally over. According to the Londoner's Facebook page, the Greenville Avenue location of the popular English pub will open for business today at 7 p.m. after a small friends and family event.
The new Londoner slipped into the space which used to host Rohst, the Korean fusion restaurant that languished and closed less than a year after opening. See also: 100 Favorite Dishes, No. 73: Fish and Chips at the Londoner
I'm excited for the Greenville Avenue location. The Uptown Londoner is notoriously crowded for morning soccer matches, and the Addison location is a bit of a drive for downtown Dallasites.The old Rhost spot boasts three levels, a front patio and a roof deck for drinking in nicer weather. There's plenty of space for large crowds.
I can't wait to order my first pint, and dig into some fish and chips.
