Let's face it: when Atresana moved out of its longtime home on the corner of Seventh Avenue and First Street last year, the building wasn't in such great shape. It still maintained some of its architectural integrity, but the massive awning obscured the original entryway, as well as the fact that one of the two window brackets over it was missing.
Once Bareburger took over the space, they set up scaffolding and gave the facade an entire revitalization and paint job, and their signage remains unobtrusive as to highlight some of the original architectural details. Their commitment to preserving history, though, became even more impressive earlier this week, when the missing bracket above the doorway was replaced.
As seen in the photo above, the new bracket (in white) very closely matches the style of the original, and it's safe to assume that it'll be painted to match the other one. It's nice to see a business move in (especially a "chain") and go out of their way to acknowledge architectural history. Good for them!
