The Birmingham News reports this morning that two restaurants have signed leases at the new Cityville mixed-use complex on 20th Street South between 1st and 2nd Avenues South. Momma Goldberg’s, an Auburn-based sandwich place that’s recently expanded to the metro area will take about 1800 square feet, while Tennesee-based Bobby Mckee’s Irish Pub will take 5000 square feet.
The above is the type of item that can be purchased from the suburban Nashville location of the pub; it appears to be a large, student-oriented affair, with a huge list of beers on tap, dinner menu, late night bands and DJs, etc.
More options downtown=more people downtown=more development downtown=good. This pint’s on us. Oh, and the News also states the development’s 255 apartments are already more than 70% rented–promising news for higher-priced apartments downtown in the current economy.
