Sentinel Peak Brewing Co. Finds Spot
The folks at Sentinel Peak Brewing Co. have hit a few snags setting up brewing operations but that hasn't dampened their passion. After a failed attempt to set up shop last year at the former Farmer John's meatpacking plant on West Grant Road, they have secured a location at Grant and Swan in the spot formerly occupied by a Philly's Finest. Renovations are under way and test batches are being brewed. Jeremy Hilderbrand, one of Sentinel's owners, says they are planning to offer traditional-style beers that were inspired by his travels in Europe. They are also looking into serving food. If all goes smoothly, the brewery should be open by late summer.
Relish Kitchen & Wine Bar Open
The restaurant that took over the Create Café and Catering space at 4660 E. Camp Lowell Drive is open. Relish Kitchen & Wine Bar is serving lunch from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. seven days a week, and dinner is available from 4 to 9 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. The service switches from "self order" during lunch to full service at dinner, so whether you're in the mood for a quick lunch or a relaxing dinner, they've got you covered. Check out the full menu at relishkitchenandwinebar.com.
New Asian Buffet Opens: Greek Taverna Closes
Another Asian buffet is now serving food to the masses. Golden Coast Super Buffet is open at 715 E. Wetmore Road in the former Golden Corral spot. Sorry for being late on the next item, but the Greek Taverna on Swan, at Swan and Camp Lowell Road, closed last month. From the restaurant's website: "Due to the downturn in the economy and the high cost of rent for our space, we will be closing our doors." The website also says the taverna's sister restaurant, the Fat Greek, is changing its name to Pelio Grill Greek Taverna & Catering when it reopens at 994 E. University Blvd. after renovations are complete.
