With the stars up above in your eyes” - Van Morrison
Besides having the namesake of what is perhaps one of the best songs, from one of the best albums, of one of my favorite performers, Moon Dance Cafe has been a personal favorite eatery for the 16 years since they opened their doors.
I recall doing a review shortly after they debuted back when I was freelancing for the Times Indicator (the print news edited by the esteemed journalist Rich Wheater) and being enamored with Ms. Drum’s approach to restaurateuring as she brought a bit of panache to the local dining scene.
Then came the pandemic and after attempting to keep pace with take out and delivery MDC closed their doors just after Christmas.
And now they are reopening...at last.
From owner Tina Drum:
“My staff and I have been busy all week ( Re-opening a scratch kitchen is no small feat) and are very excited to get back to work. We have missed our loyal customers and feel hopeful that things are starting to return back to normal. We are back and better than ever!”
“We are so excited to open tomorrow (Thursday, Feb. 18) for Dine-In, Take-out, Curbside & Delivery.”
One only hopes the bread pudding (to die for) holds out long enough for a couple of pieces to make their way back to N3 World Headquarters.
And if you’re stopping for breakfast?
The stuffed hash browns will surely make you smile.
