There have been some big changes since the start of the year to the dining scene in Sewickley – and more are coming.
While fine dining favorites Cocothé and Bruneaux both closed earlier this year, there’s some bright news coming to the neighborhood.
Sewickley Tavern, from the chef/owner team from Cocothé, will open in early fall in the space formerly occupied by Bruneaux on Beaver Street, offering an elevated take on traditional tavern food.
In a release, owner Courtney Yates said that after years of running Cocothé, she, along with executive chef Dave DeVoss, were ready to try something new. “We want to have some fun with a menu that’s really friendly and accessible.”
While the restaurant’s menu will include traditional tavern standards such as chicken wings and potato skins, DeVoss is also working on dishes like burrata salad, beer-battered crab cakes, jambalaya, and a selection of house-made soups. “The menu might look familiar,” DeVoss says, “But this is not going to be your average dining experience.”
Sewickley-based architecture firm Studio St. Germain will be undertaking the restaurant renovation.
