Back in May, the long-standing Roswell restaurant, Oak Street Cafe, was sold to Marcus Bifaro with the intent of converting the eatery into The Whiskey Project. Fast-forward to present, and some changes have been made to the original plan for The Whiskey Project, that is now planning for an early first-quarter 2018 opening.
This full-scale, 100 seat restaurant and bar will be a modern American whiskey bar with an extensive cocktail list. Headed by chef Kevin Leveille, formerly of Seed Kitchen and Bar, he will prepare a menu with “shareable experiences.” You can expect to see snacks, small and large plate offerings, charcuterie boards, duck, chicken, pork, steaks and daily specials. Many of the foods will be created to pair nicely with whiskeys, but are stand-alone meals too.
Owner Bifaro said they are tasing and tweaking the menu this week, but you may see some innovative concepts such as smoked cauliflower and popped sorghum, as well as whiskey infused desserts.
The traditional menu from Oak Street Cafe including their signature hamburgers, chicken salad and tomato basil soup will no longer be offered. The interior is also undergoing renovations and and looking forward to having a heated patio.
