oh man i'm sorry. i just now saw my post again. i meant to say paleo but was having a hard time remembering the difference between keto or paleo and i guess i split the middle. for some extra color, albeit solely earth tones, i believe the person that gave me this information also mentioned quinoa.

Perhaps because all diets are scams.

Perhaps because all diets are scams.
Years ago during the Atkins period I worked in a grocery store. The diet at the time included branded products that were low carb.

I decided to compare the low fat, regular and Atkins salad dressings of the same brand and type. If you read the nutrition info the serving sizes were the same and the je calories were the same, or so close you wouldn’t notice the difference (ex 155,160,165)

The diet worked early on because it was about eating less food. So much food contains carbs that it was easy to cut 10% from your diet. Once the special food came out the diet failed. Even earlier there were special low fat cookies on the market that just moved the calories from fat to not fat.

In this sense a restaurant targeting a specific diet is the opposite of what you want. It should be hard to eat a certain way, not go to a restaurant that probably serves 30% more calories than the diet wants.

As a business they will either need to go beyond the diet or die with the fad.

It's revocup coffee. No work as of yet it seems. Wouldn't be surprised if this one takes awhile.

The coffee place is on the north end of the Pickwick building, and on the SE corner of 9th and McGee.

Revocup to Rev Up Coffee Scene in Underserved Corner of Downtown

Coffee lovers in the underserved northeast corner of downtown are about to get a place to call their own: Revocup expects to open by early summer at the historic Pickwick Building at Ninth and McGee.

Revocup is a locally-based chain that specializes in Ethiopian coffee, a “high-caliber” bean known for its sweeter and less acidic flavor, according to Michael Johnson. He added Ethiopia is the birthplace of the coffee plant.

I saw some people doing work at the southern corner where the wine bar was supposed to be. Anyone want to check the permits and see if anything is going on or if they were just scouting?

Can't quite figure this one out. I'll ask around.

Looks like this is basically true:

went here for the downtown dazzle thing and point blank asked what was going on with cellar rat; they said cellar rat changed course on doing this and passed the project over to some entity that's going to do a kaleo/health/whatever concept, but that cellar rat would be providing the wine for that concept, and cellar rat still works with pickwick on their wine club (or something similar to a wine club). so as all probably suspected at this point, it's not happening.

The coffee shop here is under construction and the restaurant seems to have started basic work.
