I've been there for breakfast just about monthly since they opened, and I love, love, love their bagel sandwiches and breakfast burritos. The portions are large, and they don't skimp on the more expensive parts of the recipe (lox, et cetera).
My only knock on them is that the ordering/service flow isn't logical and sometimes that means a while before your order is taken. But it is never really a "problem."
Overall: big fan.

Oh, snap! But I can't comment on my handle.
Just wait, we're all going to find out that CID_95 is actually a class of '97 guy, or that Pronghorn is actually an Ibex.
Jeff Cook has been running full-sized, I-26 billboards for quite a while. Remember the one of him as a LEGO mini-fig? Anyhow, based on what I've seen the guy gets to drink all the coffee at the brokerage that he wants.
Oh, no! Pronghorn will be telling everyone to boycott Revelry. EVERYONE that listens to pronghorn will stop buying Revelry beer until they meet his disclosure demands.
Also: shame on you, City Paper, for treating this story just like every other story. How dare you do things normally?
If you believe that all lives should matter, then the US needs to treat black people like their lives do, in fact matter. Right now that's not the case. It is not in our fellow citizens' and neighbors' heads. Senator Tim Scott wasn't describing a fever dream on the floor of the senate.
The knee-jerk retort "all lives matter" is so ingrained now, so automatic, that it sounds like "No, you're wrong, black lives don't matter." Because you don't mean "you're right, black lives matter just as much as mine," which is the whole freaking point of BLM. Black lives matter, too.
They should matter to you, if you believe in the "All men are created equal" mythos, if you believe in American exceptionalism. Because the pressure, harassment, and loss of opportunity that black Americans have to deal with ON TOP OF all the regular stress and challenge that everyone has to deal with is not a hallmark of a great country. If you really believe that "All Lives Matter," then show these people that you, too believe that their lives matter as much as yours.
CHS9000: I think, for it to work, it needs to do two things:
1. Develop a good customer experience to inspire loyalty
2. Draw customers that pay well
If someone has an extra $20 lying around to dedicate to bonus cover charges, they're probably the type of person to order $12 cocktails instead of $4 cans of Bud Light. An additional, psychological layer would to enhance the sense of exclusivity, already played up by all the velvet ropes downtown. "Okay, we can finally let you four in... even though we're only 20% full. SUCKERS!"
If it is a bad business model, it will wilt. But there's a lot of money to be shaken loose from douchebags, and if these guys find the formula then bully for them.
