Renovations are underway in an old, warehouse-type structure at the edge of the historic Automotive District, at the SE corner of 3rd Avenue South and 22nd Street (car repair businesses still dominate the neighborhood). Signs announce a new restaurant called Sweet Tea, specializing in “American Dining” and “Traditional Southern Cooking”. It is hard to guess, but the space looks like it could seat a pretty large crowd.
There’s no website that I could find or any additional information–if anyone knows anything, please comment. Regardless, we’re all pleasantly intrigued by a new eating option in the central city. It’s about 2 blocks north of the Fish Market and WorkPlay and 2 blocks east of the Hyatt Place hotel. Go Midtown!
UPDATE: we now know that Cohen Carnaggio Reynolds did the design work, and that the restaurant will be a “meat-and-three” cafeteria–of all things.
