If you passed by Washington and Neil yesterday, you saw that the iconic Art Deco neon sign that played host to three different permutations of Carmon’s had been removed.
There was good reason for it. Victor Fuentes, who owns El Toro’s all over the place, is taking up the space and reopening it as The Wedge, a tequila bar that will feature Mexican items and, well, probably some limes, as well.
Fuentes formally owned V. Picasso, which I felt was quite good, on the whole, especially for the first few months of its existence.
