Week in review: 11/9/12 (access required)

Last Halloween, as flames licked up the walls of The Mt. Washington Tavern, groups of horrified customers watched the blaze ravage their favorite hangout, while the co-owners pledged to rebuild. Rob Frisch and Dave Lichty made good on their promise. Just a year and a few days after the two-alarm fire, the tavern emerged from the ashes as an entirely redesigned restaurant and bar, open to the public as of Tuesday at 4 p.m. Former customers and neighboring business owners in Mount Washington Village said they’re thrilled to welcome the tavern back, even though it’s hardly recognizable thanks to massive renovations to the tune of $4 million for the 10,000-square-foot space.
