Look for some changes to come in the early part of this new year at Highland Tavern, where a renovation and expansion is taking place. The work started back in May but has kicked up a notch recently, as the restaurant doubles in size.
Expanding into adjacent space on the east side, 100 more seats will be added, plus three more garage doors opening to the outside, new bathrooms, and a mezzanine level overlooking the bar. There are also plans to add a balcony patio, possibly by this summer.
You'll also see the tap lines double, so the draft beer offerings will go from 12 to 24. The kitchen is also slated for an upgrade, set to occur over six days in February and requiring a closure during that time. The goal is to reopen for dinner on February 13, just in time for Valentine's Day.
