Woo hoo!! Earwax Cafe is re-opening, due to the outpouring of
support from residents and restaurant fans. Is it because Sagezilla
cried?! She bawled when Manee Thai burned down, and like a Phoenix
from the fire flames, it has also risen again. After closing its
doors in February, the cafe released the following
statement on March 10:
"Due to popular demand Earwax will
re-open after a menu overhaul and cleaning tomorrow."
Kurt Guzowski, formerly Executive
Chef of Landmark Grill has spruced up the vegetarian and
vegan-focused menu, keeping a few of the old favorites and adding
some new dishes and ever-changing daily specials including more
fresh fruits and veggies.
"You guys have convinced us to
re-open, despite some difficulties, and to stick with the tried and
true concept of the cafe."
The restaurant officially re-opened March
11. The menu has been reduced to about half its size and
will include new dishes plus daily specials inspired by seasonal
produce. The restaurant will be closed Tuesdays and open only 9
a.m.-5 p.m. on Sundays for brunch; a change from the previous 7 day
a week late night schedule.
