Inside White Slab Palace

Posted on: February 26th, 2009 at 10:15 am by

Last night, White Slab Palace revealed its candlelit interior to the neighborhood, with open windows beckoning passing pedestrians. A handful of people were casually scattered at the bar and nearby tables. Piqued, I circled back to the entrance on Allen Street to grab a beer and snoop around. The interior exudes a pared-down industrial feel, complete with old school cash register, exposed piping, and floor to ceiling refrigerator. But the ultimate draw is the clear view of the street corner; it’s a people-watcher paradise.

Since the eatery is only open for drinks (March 10th for food), I obviously can’t comment on the menu.
