    Former Don Carlo's is now Carpe Diem

    Has a new restaurant taken over the former Don Carlo's location across from the Crystal as of yet? We were there a few years ago when they shut down during our vacation....one day it was operational, next day it was gone! It was always a great place for a casual meal, good pizza, etc. with a nice view of the water.

    The space was still completely empty when I was there in April.

    the name of the new place is "carpe diem"
    here is their facebook page

    when it was being decorated during the first 2 weeks in May, we thought that it was being earmarked as a special event venue.
    the bar is extraordinary.
    but, i think it is a restaurant

    Finally! So glad something is FINALLY moving into that space. Hope the reviews will be favorable so we can add it to our list when we're back in Nov.

    What I heard from a "reliable" source, no one knows what the menu is going to be?? Not sure when they are going to open either. The what were white sections are now discolored....not sure if that's what was suppose to happen to them??

    As with any business, a work in progress. Hope it all works out and we can have more restaurants downtown to choose from. We'll just have to wait and see what transpires.

    I still remember the first time we ate at that location....it was in 1996 and (I think) it was called Mama Mia's at that time.
