The owners of the never-ending mystery restaurant at 1298 Church St. claim it will open in April and serve "nutritious gourmet food" while also "hosting events to think and educate about the food system and how we can use it as an opportunity to make our health, planet and communities thrive." The fire station house is for sale again - for $5.7 million. Authentic Tattoo has opened in the old Sirena Botanica space.
