Culinary enthusiasts have something grand to look forward to as Doublemore, a new restaurant is set to open its doors on November 11. Drew Double, the chef and owner shared some details about what to expect on November 7. Double, who will be the sole chef in the kitchen, spoke enthusiastically about the venture.
Doublemore will offer dinner service from Wednesday to Saturday and brunch on Sundays. Additionally, a small lunch menu will be introduced on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, starting later in November.
“We’re going with more of a bistro-style menu, so there is going to be more main courses than small plates,” said Double.
While appetizers and sharing items will still be available, the focus will shift to a three-course traditional dining experience.
Doublemore will continue popular events like “Wine Wednesday,” offering a free appetizer with the purchase of a bottle of wine every Wednesday. They will also host a wine club gathering every third Thursday of the month and plan to unveil a special Christmas menu in December.
Double explained the origin of the restaurant’s name, explaining, “The joint between my last name is Double, obviously, and then with my investor Bruce, his company is More, so together, it worked great.”
Regarding the restaurant’s atmosphere, Doublemore aims to provide a similar experience to its predecessor, Encounters Wine Bar & Small Plate Kitchen, emphasizing flexibility in meal choices, including sharing items. The establishment has an extensive wine list as well.
Double said he is committed to market-friendly pricing, even in the face of inflation, and they plan to change the menu seasonally, offering different culinary experiences throughout the year.
“I really want to bring quality to the community,” added Double.
As the winter season approaches, the menu will feature more braised items, pumpkin, squash, and other fall-inspired dishes.
To enhance the restaurant’s interior, Double is giving it a fresh look, adding new artwork, and making it uniquely their own.
Double aims to bring unique items to the menu, such as lamb sirloin, and promises that everything will be made from scratch.
