There were issues with Drew's American Grill, sure. The place was too dang big, and I'm about 80 percent sure that building is haunted. But the flavors were there in earnest. When Drew's closed in 2014, I was pretty bummed but knew it wasn't the last time we'd see owner and restaurateur Drew Glick.

Glick, a New York native and now San Anto resident, has been sneakily trying to open Max and Louie's New York Diner off 281 and Bitters since July. He's already teased out chicken matzoh ball soup, breakfast all day, lunch, dinner, desserts and a full bar. 

Glick's vision for the eatery is an "homage to the East Coast diner traditions that past generations honed and that continue to flourish to this day."

Though there's no opening date yet, Glick shared he's close to opening, so keep an eye out for that and follow Max & Louie's New York Diner for more details. 

226 W. Bitters Road, (210) 483-7600.
