A New Downtown Cedar Rapids Restaurant Opens This Weekend
If you're headed downtown for the Market After Dark this weekend, you'll have the chance to stop by Cedar Rapids' newest restaurant!
I was scrolling through Facebook this morning, and I was surprised to discover that a brand new restaurant is set to open in downtown Cedar Rapids this weekend. It's literally a three minute walk from the radio station, so I'm not sure how I missed it!
ChopHouse Downtown will hold its grand opening celebration this Saturday, September 25th at 411 1st St SE. The building was once home to River City Eatery and is located next door to the former Dublin City Pub. According to the official Facebook page, the restaurant offers "casual dining with burgers and sandwiches, as well as steaks, pork and fish selections." The locally owned and operated business says their mission is to give their customers "a place to celebrate life's special moments by offering the best food, service, and ambiance."
ChopHouse Downtown's menu is posted on their website, and it features items like the Iowa Burger, the Mound of Nachos, the Better Cheddar Grilled Cheese, and the BBQ Burger. The specialty portion of the menu has even more to offer, with a variety of steaks, fried chicken, BBQ ribs, jumbo shrimp, blackened walleye, and mac & cheese. And don't forget the desserts and specialty cocktails! You can check out the full menu HERE.
Today and Friday, ChopHouse Downtown is having a soft opening to allow their staff to get "hands-on training." The official grand opening will take place this Saturday, September 25th from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. You can follow their Facebook page for the latest updates HERE.
