The eatery also features an extensive wine and specialty cocktail list.

The roomy space can seat up to 273 diners and features a full bar, party room and an outdoor patio space, which will be utilized in the warmer months.

Lunch, brunch, delivery and takeout options are coming soon. Current hours of operation are Monday through Thursday from 4 to 11 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 4 p.m. to midnight and Sunday from 4 to 10 p.m.
