Dining room manager Barret Seymour describes it as a chop house with an emphasis on fresh ingredients. Patrick Herron, former chef/owner of the Beechwood Grill and Afterthought, is the chef. Initially, the restaurant will be open from 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, with lunch planned for the not-too-distant future.
The main dining room seats 38 with space for 20 in an auxiliary dining room. The restaurant will feature a full bar with a special bar menu that includes tapas and mini pizzas topped with things like duck confit and brie.
Seymour says the restaurant is mostly booked through its first week, though he's saved room for walk-ins.
