Punch Bowl Social Opening Delayed Until June

To no surprise, Punch Bowl Social will not open this month. Eater reported in January that Punch Bowl Social was 80 percent complete and gearing up for a March opening, but we checked in with owner Robert Thompson and he's encountered some setbacks. Thompson tells us that between an asbestos problem and a complicated land purchase, PBS will now open in June.

With a summer opening and other restaurants in the works, Thompson definitely has a full plate. Thompson's high-end bowling alley-meets-diner is already making its way to Portland, with other potential markets in Chicago, Los Angeles and Seattle. He's also in the process of scouting a space to reopen Argyll, a gastropub that shuttered back in July 2011. While he was eyeing the Baker neighborhood, he tells us that he's now looking in Cap Hill, downtown and in Highlands.
