When Andy Ganick opened the Berkshire in Stapleton nine years ago, the neighborhood was just beginning to boom. Now he's opened a second restaurant, The Pig & the Sprout, on Chestnut Place in another up-and-coming area: the space between Union Station and Commons Park. When he reported on the Pig's opening, Mark Antonation suggested that this area might need a trendy new name. But instead, readers have focused on the name of Ganick's new place — a name he originally wanted to give the Berkshire. Says Evan:
Thank goodness there's an ampersand in the name, otherwise how could we tell it's a restaurant?
It must be a trend, the two name/word restaurant names. To name a few: Beatrice & Woodsley, Guard and Grace, Williams & Graham, Colt & Gray, etc.
