The Atlas Room will be soft open for neighborhood residents tonight with doors opening at 6 p.m. The full menu will not yet be available, but the kitchen will be serving a partial menu until 10 p.m. and the full bar with cocktails, wine, and beer will be available. They expect to open fully this week if all goes well.
Chris Surrusco who you may remember from the opening era of Granville Moore's is the bartender, cocktail master, and resident beer connesoisseur. Prior to opening Granville Moore's, Surrusco previously worked at Rustico and Old Dominion Brewery, and more recently worked at Marvin.
