You’re Alex, so who’s Alfie?
An Australian buddy named Albert. “The Australians have nicknames for everyone, including my friend Albert. I thought it would be fun to name the restaurant a nickname because it downplays the formality.” In sum, that’s what Alfie’s is, a relaxed atmosphere to eat explosive, playful food with a kickass cocktail program from a soon-to-be-announced mixologist.
Visit the Alfie’s website for updates on the pop-up and permanent restaurant coming spring 2016.
