Full Circle Tavern, the Cedars spot for local craft beer and Italian-inspired fare, will soon open another outpost in Lakewood.
The expansion will debut at 6341 La Vista Drive. If that address looks familiar, it was most recently occupied by the Ginger Man and before that, Angelo’s Spaghetti House, which called the space home for more than two decades. The distinctive Ginger Man look will get a revamp, although owner Lara Whittington didn’t want to specify what the interiors will look like other than to say it will “pay homage to the neighborhood” with some Lakewood-inspired mural art.
“We love Lakewood, and always felt like Lakewood was home. When we were approached [by the landlord of the property], the spot felt really right,” Whittington tells Eater.
The menu dreamt up by Whittington’s wife and business partner Chef Jennifer Bonner will make its way over to the new location including her “Italian Stallion” beef sandwich made with her family’s recipe, plus some new additions like homemade pastas and sauces. Patrons will find two dozen beers on tap, specialty cocktails, and a wine list. A kids menu will be available for the kid-friendly downstairs space, while upstairs will be an adults only playground. Expect boozy weekend brunches.
Stay tuned for Full Circle’s official opening date, Whittington says they’re aiming for early 2019.
