Co-owners Jeff and Chris Oakley and Cissy Olderman watched the neighborhood transform, first from the restaurant's original location on West 32nd Avenue, then from the nineteenth-century building with the quirky street-side kitchen and back entrance they moved bang! into four years later.

Find out if bang! has changed as much as its surroundings when my review is posted here tomorrow.
