Ed Westmoreland was joined by an enthusiastic crowd Monday as he cut the ribbon and opened his new Clubhouse restaurant in the Pleasanton Hotel at 855 Main St.
Westmoreland also owns Eddie Papa's restaurant on Hopyard Road. Clubhouse is the first of two restaurants, a banquet room and an outdoor patio Westmoreland will open by year's end. Across the center hallway from the Clubhouse, work is finishing on Lily's Spirit Room, a new white tablecloth restaurant the will open in time for Thanksgiving dining.
"Eddie Papa's is very successful, but it's not downtown," he said. "This is an opportunity for me to be involved on Main Street and to restore the Grand Lady, as the hotel is called."
