Coming soon: The Rosemary

When New Cross' Cafe 178 closed in January, the management said they'd found someone to carry the fire for them. Now, the team behind the excellent Dig This nursery are reopening it as a Hungarian restaurant called The Rosemary. The New Cross Gate Trust says:

The Rosemary will be opening on Friday 27th March. Run by the same people who used have the Dig It Nursery and organic veg shop next to the Hobgoblin we can expect high quality healthy food at good prices. 

The Rosemary will continue to work with Toucan, the employment training charity that ran 178 Cafe by offering training opportunities for people with learning difficulties.

Great to see this place back in action so soon and to be able to add Hungarian to the list of local options. A restaurant probably stands a better chance of persuading more people to venture away from New Cross's main drag than the cafe did too. Taste the rainbow.

Thanks to Richard for the news.
