Turn up the jukebox and throw me some fries.
Do you guys remember The Penguin restaurant which was located in Plaza Midwood? It operated from 2000-2010 and served classic diner eats.
Brian Rowe was the owner and he wants to give it another shot in a vintage space. Rowe’s new restaurant will be named Bird Bones Cafe. This restaurant will replicate his iconic Penguin Drive-In inside a century-old home in Optimist Park.
But he needs some help. Rowe has launched a $150,000 “Bring Back the Bird” campaign on GoFundMe which you can find here.
One of the former owners of The Penguin, Brian Rowe, is opening a new restaurant in NoDa in front of the Area 15 co-working space. Bird Bones Cafe is expected to open this winter with about 40-50 seats. pic.twitter.com/jMBD0JK71g— Tim Spears (@tspearstv) July 30, 2019
