Remember our speculation on the return of Sam's Noodle Shop to GraMurray? Looks like the new building going up at 29th and 3rd will not be a chinese restaurant, but will instead be home to the sports bar Tonic. At least one commenter is not so happy with his new neighbor:
Not only have they completely blocked our view of the street, the sidewalks, and the adorable houses across the street, but the "enclosed" roof deck and the huge horrific fans and equipment on top of the new 3rd floor roof are sure to be incredibly loud and obnoxious. Of course, not nearly as obnoxious as the clientele.Oh well, you can't please everybody. Regardless, this bar seems a natural fit with the other bars on this stretch of 3rd Avenue and is sure to be a big hit with the neighborhood girls from Long Island who frequent Tasti-D-Lite and the frat-boys-turned-investment-bankering-analysts who love them.
