Grateful Palate Owners Taking over at Shooter's

We had previously reported that LIPPI has applied to open a restaurant at the Shooter's Location, but they have cancelled the application.

The properly has been purchased by the owner of Grateful Palate for $7 million dollars.

Shooters Waterfront Caf will be renamed Shooters Waterfront and undergo interior and exterior renovations. Bootlegger will become Events by Grateful Palate, a venue with a view of the Intracoastal Waterway and menu similar to The Grateful Palate. Shooters will remain open during renovations. The upgrades will be done in phases and should be complete by early 2014. Events is slated to open in the fall.

Why they're staying open is a mystery; the place is consistently dead, and it's just going to slow the process. You spend 7 Millions to buy a place; do it right, not in drips and drabs.

I say they re-create The Candy Store at Bootlegger. It would be the hottest attraction in town.

Hope they know what they're doing but I doubt it.

I would put my money on Bokamper's down the street to make it while "Shooter's Waterfront" will sink if they try to make it a yachter's spot with haute cusine.

Shooter's was about Rum Runners, the pool, and the Hot Body Contests. It wasn't about fine dining or oxtail pasta, and those yuppie Boater's aren't going to fill up the restaurant.

But if we could just get the Wave to make a Shooter;s run.........
