The former St. Helens Cafe will become ... St. Harmon's? St. Helens Speakeasy?
Pat Nagle said he doesn't know. Nagle, the restaurant-and-real-estate guy who owns the Harmon brewpub on Tacoma's Pacific Avenue, is the guy who's bailing out St. Helens Cafe and building out a "neighborhood restaurant" in the 6,000-square-foot former fish-and-chippery above Doyle's Public House and Stadium Bistro.
From Nagle, we know this much:
Nagle likes Tom Douglas' seriously good pizza at Serious Pie. He'll install a fiery pizza oven.
He wants to do breakfast.
He wants to do sit-down dining.
He foresees doing delivery in the neighborhood. He wants to do take-out, too.
He wants to "warm up" the cavernous space.
He said he'll install flat-panel TVs.
He said it won't be a sports bar.
He said there'll be a bike rack out front.
He wants to expand the bar and do 25-30 percent beer-and-liquor business.
Harmon brewmaster Mike Davis' beers will be served at the new place.
Nagle said he doesn't have a name in mind.
That's where you come in:
