We just got off the phone with Tyler Fenton, the owner of the new Reilly Craft Pizza and Drink that’s going in at the old Reilly Funeral Home at 102 E. Pennington St.
Fenton, who was on his way out of town and didn’t have much time to talk, says the restaurant will be centered around artisan pizzas, but will also serve fresh-baked sandwiches and homemade pasta. It will also have a bar and lounge component.
Fenton says the interior design is being handled by the same people who designed HUB Restaurant and Creamery and Downtown Kitchen + Cocktails. He also said there will be an emphasis on maintaining the historic feel of the building, which was built in 1908.
An opening date has not been set. We’ll have more after we meet with Fenton when he gets back into town.
