    Default Southgate Centre getting a real restaurant!

    It appears that Southgate Centre is actually getting a proper restaurant!!! This will be in the SW corner lot, on the exterior of Crate & Barrel!

    I also heard the same thing from a Crate & Barrell employee. They're moving into the space formerly occupied by a Halloween shop; the space has exterior entrances only, with no mall entrance.

    It's going to be called 'State & Main Kitchen & Bar', and it looks like it's opening in August according to http://www.stateandmain.ca/

    Menu appears to be a carbon copy of OJs

    ^cept the branded "state and main" beer is actually Alley Kat,not Big Rock like OJs; some minor other changes to the menu; and I found the atmosphere to a bit more upscale with there being a lounge "separated" from the restaurant something that OJ's doesn't do.

    Looked at the menu. It's nearly exactly the same as Original Joe's...

    I did not know you could get a "Ribeye 12oz generously marbled for peak flavor & tenderness." at OJ's. Odd that a Calgary company would serve Alley Kat instead of Big Rock. If that is the case that would be a plus.
    Bottles of wine high for a resto of "this" calibre. I see wine is 1/2 off on Saturday though.

    I went last week, was not impressed. It look, tastes and is Original Joes but I think it is slightly more expensive (It has been a while since I was at OJs so I may have forgotten the prices on a few things)

    Went there for lunch yesterday, not very good & I won't be back for a while. There are lots of better options out there!
