The new Ethan Stowell joint going into The Pearl complex at 15th and Pine has its liquor license posted. Given the way the restaurant industry seems to work, that’s tantamount to announcing you’re opening tomorrow.
Of course, given that Stowell is a restauranting veteran with Union, Tavalota and How to Cook a Wolf already under his belt, there probably isn’t the same panicked rush around the opening of Anchovies & Olives. Though the workers I’ve seen over the past week or so do seem to be in a bit of a hurry. Meanwhile, anchoviesandolives.com sports only a parked set of domain advertising but I’m sure the site will be ready when the time comes.
