Commonwealth Restaurant + Skybar is set to open on the downtown mall this June and I, for one, cannot wait to enjoy people-watching from atop the corner roof deck. This is the newest restaurant project of Alex George, former owner of the much-missed Just Curry, who is opening Commonwealth with four investors. The cuisine is "new american with a south american influence" and from what I sampled at a small dinner Alex orchestrated last weekend, it promises to be delicious. 

Congratulations, Alex, on this new endeavor!
