First day of spring – last day for lunch at downtown’s amazing Gabriella Cafe.
Owner Paul Cocking admitted that since not enough ladies were lunching, Gabriella’s mid-day menu is “going south with the American economy.” The restaurant will unleash chef Brad Briske‘s full creative attention on dinners Tuesday through Sunday, and weekend brunches.

Probably a wise move, given the obvious. Thank God we still have some terrific downtown lunches options, including Oswald, Soif, Clouds, El Palomar and The Bagelry.
