The beverage program by Jacob Fergus features a small, focused wine list with wines from the Southern Hemisphere, as well as European, American, and Texas wines.
The 2,300-square-foot restaurant seats 65 with a patio seating 20 that will open in the spring. Decor is designed to give a sense of the South Pacific under the concept of a Jewel Box, with dining pods inspired by the craftsmanship of woven fishing traps.
They'll be open for dinner Tuesday-Saturday.
In a statement, Archibald says that "courtesy, civility, and liveliness will be the focal point," and that his goal is to "bring people together through my food, whether it’s for a special occasion or just a regular evening out. When you boil it down, I just love to cook and make people happy.”
