“What’s up with Julia’s?” writes the Swamplot reader who got a Main St. train to slow down enough to snap the photo of the unlit Midtown restaurant above. “It’s been dark and closed for weeks now. With all the new development and foot traffic from the new apartments across the street and new restaurants/bars in the area, everyone’s wondering: Is something new in the works for this premier midtown corner?” The answer is yes: A “new concept” for the restaurant space is being developed. In the meantime, Julia’s Bistro is closed for lunch and dinner, but available for private parties.
Restaurateur Marcus Davis bought the restaurant at 3722 Main St. in 2013; it shares Alabama St. frontage with his Breakfast Klub at 3711 Travis St. Between the 2 buildings is the bar formerly known as the Mink, which Davis also bought with a partner and renamed the Alley Kat Bar and Lounge.
