Laurel Tavern, a California eatery that promises casual vibes and upscale bar fare, will open its doors on Lower Greenville next week.
The restaurant is set to arrive at 1920 Greenville Avenue, the space formerly occupied by Clark Food & Wine, with big plans for becoming the area’s newest neighborhood restaurant, according to a press release. The space, decked out with tin walls, low-slung ceilings, and diamond-tufted leather banquettes, was designed to evoke the feeling of home. A large, L-shaped black walnut bar is a focal point of the space, and high-top tables offer plenty of seating.
As far as the food is concerned, diners can look forward to familiar dishes like fish tacos, brussels sprouts with bacon vinaigrette, and chicken tenders. Salads, sandwiches, and burgers are also on offer, including a veggie option. At the bar, drinkers will find a short but reasonably priced list of wines and cocktails like the Big Buck Hunter, a mix of Old Forester bourbon, vanilla, ginger beer, mint, and lime.
Laurel Tavern will kick open the doors for dinner service on Wednesday, May 23, and will be open daily from 5 p.m. to 12 a.m. Brunch service is expected to follow in the coming weeks.
