First it was Marquee Grill, then Village Marquee — now the tony Highland Park Village spot from restaurateur Brian Twomey is set to re-open this Thursday as Village Kitchen.
Acclaimed chef Andre Natera remains at the helm, offering a considerably less-fancy menu that has "neighborhood restaurant" written all over it. Expect everything from calamari, mussels and tuna tartare to Pecan Lodge brisket-topped flatbread, fried chicken and waffles and loaded baked potato gnocchi.
The dining room, too, has been the recipient of some serious dressing down — gone are the white tablecloths and glitzy chandeliers, replaced by hardwood floors and butcher paper-covered tables.
The upstairs portion of the space will soon transform into Toko V, promising sushi and modern Asian street food (including ramen).
