Loeb Properties issued a press release this morning with news about a new restaurant, Belly Acres, coming to Overton Square.
From the release:
Belly Acres, a new farm to table burger restaurant concept by Ben McLean, signed a lease for 3,894 SF of space at 2102 Trimble Place in Overton Square. The restaurant will be located on the east side of the new Tower Courtyard with a patio overlooking the area. McLean, who has previously worked with Huey’s, Soul Fish and Alchemy, is also assisting in the opening of Lettuce Eat in Germantown. ….
Belly Acres promises to be an energetic, environmentally responsible restaurant. Operators will source ingredients locally and offer a variety of burger options to accommodate all dietary preferences from carnivorous to vegetarian to gluten-free. McLean plans to work with at least three local farms to provide the restaurant’s ingredient supply
The restaurant, slated to open in May, will have a kid-friendly design, “a mix between Willy Wonka’s farm and the City Museum in St. Louis.”
