A little bit later than we anticipated but worth the wait! Also standby for a restaurant upstairs, looks like being called Nona’s Kitchen. This is the spot from the owner of Russia House and Biergarten Haus. Alphonse’s current hours are 6am-11pm with lunch starting at 11am and dinner starting at 4pm.

Mark this as another phenomenal transformation – remember when this was Almaz Ethiopian restaurant back in 2011 before later becoming CB 1212:
