Black Dog Smoke & Ale House, perhaps the most adored and exclusive eatery in all of Champaign-Urbana, has completed the restoration of the old old train station in Downtown Champaign. Two weeks ago, the restaurant opened its real doors to the public after a couple months of carryout only. When I went for dinner last week, it was packed. And it wasn’t even the weekend!
The eagerly awaited, much anticipated official sit-your-butt-in-the-seat opening of Black Dog in Downtown Champaign has happened. People are excited.
