Two More Restaurants Open in Village
Slice and Pint (replacing Everybody’s Pizza) is now open and will eventually serve the four basic food groups ... pizza, chocolate, beer (still waiting for a license), and other stuff. Ink and Elm Lounge-Restaurant-Tavern focuses on locally sourced, Southern cuisine.
