Sunrise on Sunset Harbour: Morgans opens, Fresh Market gets closer and more

There’s progress on Purdy!

Morgans on the Beach, 1787 Purdy Ave., opened quietly on Thursday night, and diners during the weekend gave rave reviews.

Joe Allen, the neighborhood staple, was always dark, with curtains covering the windows to the street and bay views across Maurice Gibb Memorial Park. But Morgans management let in the light, and it makes an amazing difference.

A block away, the under-construction Fresh Market is taking shape toward a possible October opening. The market, 1800 West Ave., already has a manager, Ovidio Cuervo, named by Fresh Market in Greensboro, N.C.

And there is a Spanish restaurant nearing an opening in the old Picnic space at Bay Road and 20th Street. That space has hosted two failed ventures. Picnic was lousy, and Sea Rock was just too loud for dinner.

The new place looks great through the window. We’ll see.
