You may call this the Verizon shopping center, because it was the only business for so long at the corner of Blackrock Road and the Westbound Lane of State Route 200. However, this past Wednesday, Mark Bushner and his partner, Ed Owens, opened their second Crazy Egg restaurant on the corner of the shopping center and has a very varied breakfast menu of bennies (eggs benedict dishes), frittatas and other dishes as well as lunch and dinner. The new restaurant serves eggs all day and is open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day.
The inside is bright and sunny and the waitresses and staff are eager to please. The lunch and dinner menus include handmade burgers, all you can eat lunch specials every day and reasonably priced evening specials as well. We wish them good luck as the newest business in that mall.
Vino’s Pizza is responsible for that strange looking waving woman with a purple outfit and orange flag on the highway. It started out a really good “New York thin”pizza restaurant (in this reporter’s opinion) and now has added Italian specialties as well as cold and hot subs and salads. It even has a kids menu…again all reasonably priced. There are also new attractive booths in this little restaurant on the opposite end of the shopping center. Vino’s also does home delivery and is opening another Vino’s on 14th Street on the island where Miss Carolyn’s used to be.
Add a new branch of Buy-Gones (Barb Kent’s consignment store), Bliss Cupcakery, Allstate Insurance (Morrows), One Stop Party Shop, Dana’s Hair Studio, Dance, Art & Karate Studio, The Vibe (A Youth Center), Early Impressions, Fluid Kinetic (Pilates, Yoga & Massage), a Cleaners, We Buy Gold and a Chiropractic Physician (Dr. Bruce Glickman) and you have a suddenly very busy area for Saturday shopping.
