The owners are renovating 911 South Street to open a new bar and restaurant named Gleason’s this August, according to their website.
The owners plan to focus on beer, meat and utilizing local ingredients, as they do the two-year-old Birdsall, but will offer mostly flatbread pizzas. The location, which formerly housed Ciro’s Italian restaurant, is just two blocks away from John Sharpe and Tim Reinke’s Birdsall House, a popular restaurant and bar on Main Street.
Sharpe and Reinke have partnered with Bryan Delaney and Damian Collemo to open Gleason’s, named after Jackie Gleason, who once had a house in the city, according to lohud.com. Sharpe, Reinke and Delaney once owned Blind Tiger Ale House in New York City.
An octopus ‘salumi,’ pickled onions, basil pesto and arugula flatbread is one example of an offering on their prototype menu. Soups and salads will be offered as well, according to their website.
They will also feature eight specific styles of beer - “pilsner, IPA, pale ale, porter, hefeweizen, stout, rotating seasonal, and one ‘wallet-friendly’ beer,’”– to be dispensed from a T draught tower. And the draught will rotate less often then it does at Birdsall.
A diverse wine selection, bourbons, scotch and a cocktail list built around house-made bitters, are also on the menu.
