Union Street Openings Continue...

~THE BRICK YARD BAR & RESTAURANT~ is due to open in the former Bayside Bar & Grill space on Saturday June 5th at the 33rd annual Union Street Festival. To celebrate, the restaurant will be open at 10am, offering $5-$10 menu items all weekend long, and signature cocktails like their Pura Vida (a watermelon-based rum drink). The menu of California cuisine will be focused on healthy and comfort food dishes (citrus salad with grilled chicken, thin crust pizzas, pulled pork sliders, chopped chicken lettuce cups, and seared ahi tuna). The spacious 3,600-square-foot venue has undergone floor-to-ceiling renovations, which include new tile and hardwood floors, custom-made wine displays, skylights, tufted leather booths, a 30-foot bar with flatscreen HD TVs, a private lounge that can be reserved for special events (stocked with its own audio system, personal bar, and pool table), and there’s an elevated outdoor patio facing Union Street. 1787 Union St. at Octavia.
