Midtown 12: Engine 11

This bar and burger joint is right around the corner from the Fox Theatre. A lot of people have reviewed it favourably. However, one may not count on speedy service (there were some scathing comments on the 'net), if planning to catch a show at the Fox. I did neither, but I certainly appreciated the photo opportunity from across the street.

Great architect shot Ayush! It appears to have been a fire station at one time?

Well, Ayush, it doesn't offer good service as a specialty, according to its awning ad.

It seems the perfect conversion from an old fire station Ayush
Hello!
A very interesting combination. Tradition and modernity.
Beautiful photo.

That is a very American looking building Ayush.
Nice to see that you can enjoy your beer and burger at Engine 11 in the open air as well. You've captured three different styles of architecture in this one shot, Ayush. The walker & parked car seem to match the Bar's red banner.
Quite an original way of converting an old fire station!
Fine capture Ayush.
Looks as though it is desperately trying to make an effort at some kind of sophistication in the wrong neighbourhood!
Hopefully service was speedier in it's previous life!

A fire station that sells beer and burgers, while waiting for the alarm to ring. A novel idea. The 'bad' service must be while they are attending a fire.

Lovely photo of the recycled fire station.

Good use of the old fire house. Some restaurants near theatres are really geared up to get people fed and watered in time for curtain up. Perhaps its somewhere for a more relaxed evening with no time pressures.
Maybe people should arrive a little earlier. The world is spoiled by McDonald's speed of delivery. I would rather have good food.

By the way, that is a very cool shot.
it's a great old building very well framed Ayush... but how do they get the fire trucks out onto the street grin....petersmile
