Watch Travail's new location get demolished [VIDEO]
Fans of Travail Kitchen and Amusements have been patiently awaiting the team's new brick-and-mortar location after the restaurant closed its doors for the summer. While there have been plenty of Travail appearances and pop-ups around town since then (along with the ever-popular Pig Ate My Pizza), there's a light at the end of the tunnel for diners who want to visit the eatery on a regular basis. Construction at the new Travail location has progressed steadily all season, and now you can see it happening.
The restaurant has been closed since April 6, but will soon rise out of the demolition rubble as a two-part restaurant: a streamlined reinvention of the old Travail and a sandwich shop with a full bar called the Rookery.
