    Under new ownership, Cure a happy Capitol Hill story of exit - and entrance - across from Cal Anderson
    With success in Capitol Hill food and drink more and more dictated by the muscle and scale that comes with owning multiple locations, there aren't a lot of happy exit stories for owners of simpler ventures dedicated to simply giving the neighbors a nice place to hang out, eat, and drink.

CHS Pics | A Melrose Market feast

OK, so it was probably a lot less charming — but certainly less gory — that the prized birds were encased in cardboard boxes. There were no scenes of Scrooge having a boy pull a giant turkey through snowy London. But the preparations for a feast were in full swing Sunday at Melrose Market along with a jazz quartet, wine tasting, and plenty of trimmings for sale.
