Two Brothers Brewing Co. is expected to open its new restaurant at the former site of the Marion Street Cheese Market, 100 S. Marion St., next month, according to co-owner Jason Ebel.
Ebel announced the goal to open next month at the Oak Park Board of Trustees meeting where the board approved a liquor license for the establishment.
The Warrenville-based operation will not be a brewery, however, Ebel said. While it will feature Two Brothers products, the restaurant will also carry beers by other brewers, he said.
“We’ll be doing mostly upscale pub food,” Ebel told the board. “Everything that we do is all from scratch. We make all of our own dressings, sauces, organic foods. And we locally source products as much as possible.”
He said the quick turnaround on opening the doors is due in part to the space, but Two Brothers will be doing minor renovations on the space to make room for a café at the location.
Two Brothers takes the place of locally owned Marion Street Cheese Market, which closed in September 2016. The cheese market had previously spent roughly $500,000 rehabbing and creating a new marketing strategy for Marion Street Cheese.
Two Brothers is not the only new eatery coming to the area with an emphasis on beer. Wild Onion Brewery is renovating the building at 1111-1113 South Blvd. for a restaurant and brewpub, which is expected to open later this year.
