Construction, Menu, Hiring and More

Thankfully, construction has been going well so far and we are still hoping for an early October open date. As a result of the feedback received through the poll, as well as in person and in email--we will be a non-smoking venue (both in the bar and the main dining room), with a smoking area on the patio. Convincing and passionate arguments were made on both sides, but of the 350+ people that voted, over 80% favored non-smoking.

We are in the process of finalizing our website, which should go live next month. At that time we will post our menu and also begin the hiring process. We should also have a post here from our chef in the following weeks discussing the menu and our process for delivering fresh and delicious lunch and dinner fare.

We plan on holding numerous pre-opening events, including a fundraiser where all proceeds will benefit a local charity. Sign up on the Tobacco Road website to receive updates and invitations to these special events. As always, please continue to let us know your thoughts on food, sports and service so that we can create a dining experience that really does exceed your expectations.
