Tried the new Cheddars restaurant on Hanes Blvd today. It has been opened for a week now. Lunch was packed with people but they still manage to maintain pretty good level of service for a new restaurant with a new crew. I had the Napa Ciabatta sandwich which was quite good. The mile high Onion Rings is a lot of rings for $4. The menu is casual dining but offers a variety of dishes you usually do not see in places like Applebees or Chilis. I recommend it.

According to the Business Journal, The owners of Milner’s American Southern restaurant are planning a new restaurant concept called Brothers which will open in the former Bambino restaurant space at 2391 Lewisville Clemmons Road this spring. in Clemmons. It will have a vintage industrial design concept.

The menu and presentation at Brothers will be more casual than Milner’s and feature scratch pizza, tacos, burgers, grilled cheese sandwiches and a smokehouse section. A chalkboard menu will change weekly and feature fresh, local and regional food, such as pork, bison and seafood from North Carolina and vegetables from Minglewood, Sugar Creek and Harmony Ridge Farms. “Buddy and I want to have the ability at Brothers to create fun food and service that comes with less of the rules that have defined Milner’s,” said John Milner.

I sometimes forget about Ryan's because it's been here so long, I guess, but it's really one of the best restaurants in the city and Triad. The food is excellent and so are the service and the atmosphere. Congratulations to Ryan's for this well-deserved recognition.

Kudos to Bib’s Downtown whose owners will be featured next season in the cooking competition show BBQ Pitmasters which will air sometime this summer. The show is on the cable channel Destination America on Time Warner channel 256 or 1256 in High Def. Remember it's not Eastern or Western, its Bestern!! :wink:

Another brewery bar opening as reported by the WSJ:

Ryan Pritts, Eric Weyer and Eric Swaim have signed a lease to open a microbrewery and bar at 918 Bridge St., off Northwest Boulevard behind West End Opera House. The company will be called Hoots Beer Co. and the bar will be Hoots Roller Bar, Swaim said. The bar and brewery is in a storage building of the former Hoots Roller Mill, which made flour many years ago.

“We plan to make all styles of beer,” Swaim said. “We’ll have a 10-barrel system to start, and it probably will be sold exclusively in-house at least for the first year.”The bar also will serve wine and liquor. They hope to open the bar by late summer and the brewery by fall or early winter. A website, www.hootspublic.com, is under construction, as is a Facebook page to be titled Hoots Roller Bar.

Another new microbrewery - I wish them well and hope the location is not too out-of-the-way.

re. the new microbrewery....

When the new bar downtown opened I was surprised not to see any signs of the old 'private club' rule. Has NC relaxed its rules and allowed normal bars to exist finally?
