Crave owners Keyvan and Kam Talebi
Kaskaid Hospitality, the parent company of the Crave restaurants, Union and others has pegged an opening date for its new Uptown venture. After a run of soft openings and a private event next Thursday, the Southern-focused BoneYard Kitchen & Bar officially fires up its fryers on March 7 in the former Old Chicago space on Hennepin Avenue.
At a glance, the dinner menu – with Confederate state favorites including fried chicken, crab hush puppies and shrimp and grits – seems to pass the Paula Dean test (minus the racism, thank you). Drinks wise, the Cravers’ new concept emphasizes beer and bourbon, a noble formula that helped make Butcher & the Boar a hit two miles up the road.
It sounds like fans of the OC’s old patio need not worry. The patio area’s been expanded and converted into a three-season space with retractable walls and awnings (we know how those Kaskaid guys love retractability).
Monday-Wednesday 11 a.m. to midnight
