At last week’s community meeting at Fairfax High School about a new permit parking zone, I ran into Eric Greenspan, the acclaimed chef of The Foundry on Melrose. Eric has been talking for months about opening a casual grilled cheese restaurant right next door to The Foundry. (Great idea.) I haven’t seen any construction in that space, so I asked Eric what was going on. He assured me that the new restaurant is going to happen, but is taking longer than anticipated. He hopes to have it open by March.
Hurry up, Eric. We want our grilled cheese!
By the way, the Foundry web site says that Eric will be appearing on Iron Chef America on Sunday, November 21, 2010. The restaurant will have a special dinner and screening that evening.
