Todd A. Price reports that Michael Nirenberg is OUT at Tivoli & Lee and IN at upcoming Fulton Alley, the boutique bowling venue opening sometime this Fall in the CBD, likely in November. The bowling alley/restaurant/bar hybrid heading to 600 Fulton Street (in part of Harrah's parking garage) is being developed by a super team including Kyle Brechtel, who helped open Merchant, and the Cure Co. guys Neil Bodenheimer and Kirk Estopinal.
Exceptional cocktail program meets bowling alley? Yes. As for the food, Nirenberg's Southern-influenced menu will be on trend with "sliders, deviled eggs, homemade meat pies," and yet defying them with a cray cray "Southern-style frito mixto with calamari and oysters along with smoke, fried and glazed chicken wings."
