Hemingway's opens sort of

There's been gossip, there's been scandal, there's been disbelief and disinterest and now Hemingways is following in the wake of Hacienda whose site it is taking over at 13 Komsomolsky Prospect. Like Hacienda, nearly a year ago, it has finally opened its summer veranda. The opening of the main restaurant is delayed. Sound familiar? It should. Hemingaways is owned by the same group of intrepid foreign investors who backed Doug Steele in the original venture. Sans Doug, they are following his formula, every evening from 6pm to 8pm is happy hour, with half price Mojitas, Cuba Libra and Bloody Mary's (with Tequila) plus half price Baltika. From noon to 16:00 weekdays the food menu is discounted by 50%. Cuban Pork Sandwich, Pepper Steak, Rib Eye, Burittos, Chili, homemade cheesecake and salads.

The official opening of the main restaurant is postponed until September, by which time we hope that not only will the background music be less in conflict with the venues theme but that service will be dramatically improved.
