"For Rent" Sign Back Up on Great Lakes/ Terroir Space, No Cause for Alarm

It was a little mysterious when the space on the corner of Fifth Avenue and First Street, last home to Great Lakes and soon to be home to wine bar Terroir, suddenly got a brand new "For Rent" sign last week. Well don't panic, folks- Terroir is still on its way.

Rounding the corner you'll notice that the same exact sign has also been pasted onto the now-vacant space that was up unti recently Blue Ribbon Sushi, which merged last month with Blue Ribbon Brasserie next door. A call to the number on the sign confirmed that the space in question is indeed Blue Ribbon, not the Terroir building, and a Craigslist listing that went up a couple weeks ago (but has since been taken down) had the same info, along with a photo of Blue Ribbon's interior.

Seems like the real mystery here is when construction on Terroir will get underway!

Could you tell me a bit more about that splash of paint beneath the For Rent sign? Is it Dale Talde's tag? Will he be opening a pop-up graffiti center on that corner?

I believe the grafitti reads "Diddles" and features a guy doing something rather obsence with a flour tortilla.

This morning the gates were halfway up and a panel truck was parked outside, so maybe something's going on... albeit slowly!

Nice, that sounds like construction...finally. Would love to be able to have a glass of wine here this summer.

@Felton: because there's no other place to have a glass of wine in the vicinity.

April 13, 2012 | Unregistered Commenteranon

No, there's no other place in the neighborhood associated with Marco Carmona in which someone can have a glass of wine, if they so desire, in the neighborhood. Don't like it? Don't go there, and don't waste your own time commenting on it.

Oh, Marco Carmona. I stand corrected. that's truly impressive.

April 13, 2012 | Unregistered Commenteranon

WTF is Marco Carmona and why is he opening a bar without asking my permission?

April 13, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterdaletalde

I can have wine at any number of places, yes. I specifically said "here" because I'm looking forward to this particular establishment. Not complicated, smartass. Plus, its three blocks away from which will make it the nearest and, I anticipate, the best near my home. Sod off, anon.

Dale, you're a Top Chef contestant. Marco was almost The Next Iron Chef. Step in line. :)

They've starting doing demo this week. Some interesting odors coming out of that spot when the doors are up (smells like Great Lakes took an upper decker and closed the gates).

April 13, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDave

The odors have been there forever....
