It's been a banner — some might venture to say epic — couple of weeks for Deep Ellum: Plans for a Wild About Harry's came to light, Monkey King debuted with soup dumplings, Tanoshii Ramen finally opened, and now Cajun/Creole favorite Alligator Cafe is moving into the neighborhood with a second location at 2912 Elm Street.
The new 'Gator's interior is quite different from the minimalist whitewashed look that once occupied the space when it was Tracy Miller's Rosemont; the walls are now painted a vibrant lime green (and check out those cute little alligator cutouts outside the front door).
According to Alligator Cafe's Facebook page, tonight is "[...] a soft opening so friendly faces only." (No first night Yelp reviews, alright?) The restaurant is offering some pretty killer opening night specials, though: local drafts from Revolver, Lakewood, Four Corners and Deep Ellum Brewing Company are a mere $1.50 and there will also be $2 glasses of wine.
