Former Robin Des Bois On Smith Street To Become Brick Oven Pizza Place

Many in the neighborhood still miss "Robin Des Bois",  the french bistro and wine bar with a fun eclectic decor and a much-loved back yard at 195 Smith Street.  The eatery opened in a former shoe store a few years ago and quickly became a favorite on restaurant row, before closing in December 2011. In the last few months, the storefront and the apartments above it have been undergoing renovation.  Just a few days ago, a sign went up indicating that the retail space will soon become a brick oven pizza place.
A quick glance inside shows that there is still lots of work to do before a grand opening.
It's a bit disappointing that the space won't be used for something more along the lines of 'Robin.'
There are already quite a few pizza places on Smith Street.
