Supperland is the latest restaurant concept from the owners of Haberdish, Crepe, Cellar, Growlers Pourhouse and Reighning Doughnuts. It will occupy two buildings: what was once a church that was built in 1952 – which will be the main restaurant - and another building that dates to 1936 – which will be the cocktail bar. The planned menu concept is southern meat and sides – taking inspiration from "church potlucks, traditional meat, and three diners." They will also feature specialty cocktails by Colleen Hughes, known for creating cocktail menus that are creative, complex, and made with rare ingredients. They are hoping to open in early 2020.
