Tupelo Honey's Elizabeth Sims confirms officially:
The Asheville-based restaurant will open in early December, if things go according to plan, in the former Pewter Rose spot in South End. Coolest detail? They're adding an elevator, so diners won't have to climb those intimidating steps (and those who can't climb will be able to go).
The menu will be the same as the original's, but the decor will aim to be Charlottean, said Sims, marketing director for the business, owned by Steve Frabitore. He bought the restaurant (which opened in 2000) in 2008 and has since opened a second Asheville location (on the south side) and ones in Knoxville (2012), Greenville (S.C., in June) and plans to open in Chattanooga in September.
"We try to take the fun, whimsical essence of our brand into the new market," said Sims. "We want to be a Charlotte Tupelo Honey (and) we are honored to be in (the former Pewter Rose) location."
Details to come. And just so I'm not the only one humming for the rest of the day: This.
