Over in Shaw, New American restaurant Thally is opening tonight, which showcases the talents of popular chef Ron Tanaka, whose resume includes New Heights, Cork, CityZen, Palena and the shuttered Citronelle. Its vintage storefront location is decorated with familiar rustic elements - think exposed brick, reclaimed wood, barn fittings and a high ceiling - creating a feeling that is distinctive, warm and welcoming. Intriguing graphics hark back to the neighborhood’s history when a livery stable was located nearby. At night, subtle lighting gives the back wall a dramatic 3D effect.
A black granite bar with comfortable leather seats is outfitted with taps for rotating craft beers and the house fave - ciders. Two will be featured each day. Cocktails, housemade sodas and 24 wines by the glass will also keep customers happy.
It's looks likely to be a mecca for local residents, and - with a rising star in the kitchen - a dining destination as well. To see why, check out what chef Tanaka will be cooking:
