Bureaucratic Delay on Sweet Fire Donna’s Opening – An Update

UPDATE – 12:40pm: Sweet Fire Donna’s responded on Twitter (see below)

My spies tell me that Sweet Fire Donna’s, the long-awaited barbecue joint located on John Carlyle Street in our neighborhood, had hoped to do a soft opening on Thursday night (2/27), but the City hood inspector has not yet shown up, and they are afraid they will not be able to open until Friday (2/28). See their response below.


As discussed earlier, I have heard that when they intially open, they intend to open for lunch only, then ease into the dinner crowd.
