Sweet news for hipster Charlotteans:
The managers of The Penguin haven’t allowed the recession hold them back: They’re opening a second restaurant this fall.
Greg Auten, the minority partner who’s in charge of designing the new menu, said they’ll call the new restaurant “Pinky’s.” It will be located at the corner of Morehead Street and Freedom Drive, a few blocks from Bank of America Stadium near uptown, and he hopes it will open by November.
“We’re really excited about it,” Auten said. “It’s not going to be The Penguin, but it’s going to be a cool place, too.”
Although, to be frank… I’m worried about a restaurant serving fried pickles being so close to Lisa’s work. That could be bad!
