Details On The Waverly

The Waverly - Red Snapper

Details are emerging on Michael O’Halloran’s (Bistro 7) second restaurant, The Waverly which is set to open this April.

“The Waverly will bring ambitious but approachable food to the neighborhood. We’ll apply French technique to local ingredients to create sturdy, full-flavored modern-classic dishes,” says Chef O’Halloran.

Unlike Bistro 7 The Waverly will have a liquor license featuring an international wine list, craft beers and classic cocktails.

A 12-seat bar and 8-seat lounge area will be offset from the 75-seat dining room by a two-sided fireplace. Modern chandeliers will illuminate the space. Dark wood and leather will accent the bar and lounge; high ceilings and large windows will mark the dining room.

Appetizers will be priced between $8 and $14; entrees range from $21 to $28. There will also be the option of a Chef’s Tasting Menu, a seven course $55 prix fixe. Menu highlights after the jump.
