My husband and I were talking about this again tonight--hoping that 2 memories might add up to most of 1 after 8 years or so ;-) -- The rooftop at Fleetwood's looks like what we remember. I kept thinking it was the restaurant called I'O, but as I realize I'O is down the road a spell and not where we were, I wonder if it wasn't Cafe O'Lei. Something about the "O" in the name rings a bell....
We were so happy with the restaurant, but were shocked to hear from our waiter that the place had been sold and was going to be turned into a high end "club-like" sort of atmosphere--fine wines, liquors, steaks, seafood, cigars. So different than the local fare that was offered when we were there. Waiter didn't think it would fly, and it would seem as though it didn't, as seems like many of these places we're talking about have been through several iterations over the years.
We'll stop by several of these places on our stroll down Front St in May and see which one seems most familiar. Thanks to all for helping us jog our brains! (sad how pathetic our memories are!)
