Tyler’s Taproom, which signed a lease in downtown Raleigh's Seaboard Station before the economic downturn took hold, now expects to open the restaurant this fall.
Construction has begun on the more than 10,00-square-foot restaurant, which will include the space previously occupied by Tookie's Grill.
The restaurant will also feature an outdoor deck and bar facing Peace Street.
“We are excited about finally making our Raleigh location a reality,” Tyler Huntington, president of Tyler's restaurants, said in a release. “It took a while to get all of the pieces together, but the wait has been worth it. In the end we will have more space, room for private events, and a great patio area.”
This will be the fourth Tyler's in the Triangle.
The others are located in downtown Durham's American Tobacco Campus, in downtown Carrboro and at Beaver Creek Crossings in Apex.
Construction on the new space is expected to be completed this fall.
