“They've just opened up at the new spot next door”
Reviewed May 28, 2010

821 has moved from it's EXTREMELY cozy former location to a larger spot next door. Extremely veggie-friendly. The food is still excellent, as always, but it is going to take a long time to get used to the new atmosphere. The old 821 was like eating at your crazy aunt's place at Thanksgiving with the "kids" (now 20-something adults) all crammed together at a too-small table. The new place is a lot more open, airy, and brighter. It still takes a while to get your food, but the wait is worth it. Cheap drinks and good eats is a combination you can't go wrong with.
