As you know from an earlier post, a Southwestern/American Bistro called “The Cardinal’s Nest” is moving into the building where Café-Ology used to be. The new owner has been working on the place all summer, and it is finally coming together. Here is what it looks like now:
Here is a picture of a pirate that I assume will be a permanent prop in the establishment and may be used to scare away the bad luck that put Café-Ology out of business after only one year.
The owner, John Gecewicz, is returning to Middletown after a successful career as an international model. He was featured in GQ and Vogue, and seems to have been pretty successful. Here’s a photo of him, courtesy of the article in The Middletown Press. What do you think, Wes? Hot or not?
After he finished modeling, Mr. Gecewicz started his own café and catering business in New York, although not much about this can be found online. Hopefully, this means that we can expect some quality food out of the place. For those of you who are wondering, you will be able to buy beer, wine and sangria at Cardinal’s Nest. The place will also be open for late night dining, although it is unclear whether it will be open as late as Mamoun’s.
