Where We Are Headed
Anyone that’s lived in the area for more than a couple years knows the city is in growth mode. Just about everywhere you turn new buildings are popping up, people are moving in, and communities are reinventing themselves.

And while most everyone is happy about the restaurant itself, it’s the outdoor fire pit and proposal for an outdoor events stage that has neighbors raising their voices.
