Authentic Colonial Restaurant in Carlsbad?

by The Editors on April 29, 2009

Zd1Ea4Db2Fa7C539C882575A1005Fdded.JpgWhat does the Carlsbadistan restaurant landscape really need? Well, if you’re retired businessman from Rancho Sante Fe named Bruce Bartlett, then we apparently need a recreation of the Green Dragon Tavern, the tavern where “the nations founding fathers once gathered,” according to a Barbara Henry story in the North County Times.

The “Green Dragon Tavern,” which would be more of a restaurant and a museum than a bar, would go in the long-vacant Hadley’s fruit and nut building on Paseo del Norte. . . Bartlett is proposing to create a row of colonial buildings that would contain 21,281 square feet of interior space. . . One of the structures in the row would be a copy the Green Dragon Tavern, which has been described as the “headquarters of the Revolution,” Bartlett said.

A row of colonial buildings at the beach? Sounds horrifying.

Actually, the GREEN DRAGON is going to be surprisingly beautiful and fits in perfectly with Carlsbad’s original heritage. Southern California will love this authentic Irish/American Pub. There is a lot of love going into this project and it will be apparent. I look forward to seeing the result. Editors don’t knock it to you see it (:
