The Cereal Bowl Opening March 27th – Soft Opening Today!

The Cereal Bowl is officially slated to open on March 27th, but if you are in the Cleveland Park area today you can stop by for their soft opening from 6 – 10 pm (thanks to District Tattle for the heads up about it).  I wrote about the diabetes inducing menu in December, and Tim at Young & Hungry has a roundup of the many reactions to this new restaurant.  I am certainly curious to try it out, but I’m not sure this will ever make my top breakfast/brunch lists…
