The Cove Opens (Softly) Tonight 

When Midtown dining institution Anderton's closed last year, interior designer Jim Marshall managed to acquire most of the decor -- the ship bar, the retro chandeliers, and the nautically-themed murals. He also managed to acquire the old Beer Joint location on Broad Avenue.

So Marshall decided to open a new bar using Anderton's sea-faring decor in the old Broad Avenue dive. It was the perfect marriage of two former pillars of Midtown. The Cove, as it's being called, will host a soft opening tonight beginning at 5 p.m. at 2559 Broad.

Since the bar has yet to acquire its liquor license, they'll only be selling beer, oysters, and pizza. But a full bar and a full menu are coming soon.
