Blackbird Takes Flight Today by West Washington Park

Blackbird, the latest from Table to Tavern partners Rob Lanphier and Angie and Brian Midtbo, who also own Atticus and Boone's Tavern, is opening today at 3 p.m., in the space that formerly held HandleBar Tavern and Abo's. A grand opening is scheduled for next Monday, December 1, at which point Blackbird will also begin daily lunch service at 11 a.m. Weekend brunch will be added beginning December 11. While the restaurant is designed to appeal to a broad range of customers, the primary focus is on a comfortable, casual and unpretentious setting with a creative but not intimidating menu.
