Temperance to arrive (more or less) soon!

We’ve been hearing a lot of buzz about Temperance since last Spring, when it was “coming soon” on West Broughton.  Their motto, we were told, was “Moderation in all things, including itself.”   That one stuck with us. The tentative menu is eclectic, urban,  sophisticated, despite their contention that  the restaurant is one “run by kids for kids.”  Fried green tomato napoleons and black bean and quinoa cakes don’t sound especially  kid-like to us. Anyway Temperance is on its way, soon or late, it’ll be in a gorgeous historic building.
