Kane Realty Corporation is excited to announce that The Village Tavern, an upscale, casual restaurant offering exceptional food, craft cocktails and an award-winning wine list, will be opening in the Main District of North Hills. Village Tavern is the first restaurant announcement for the Main District Expansion project currently under construction. Once completed, the redevelopment will include a 12-story high-rise residential building, 346,000 square feet of office space and 100,000 square feet of ground floor retail.
“We are thrilled to welcome Village Tavern to North Hills,” said John Kane, CEO of Kane Realty Corporation. “Village Tavern will be an outstanding addition to Raleigh as well as a great amenity for patrons, office tenants and residents of the Main District Expansion project.”
The original Village Tavern, founded by Scott Richardson, opened its doors in 1984 in Winston- Salem. Born and raised in North Carolina, Richardson said he is very focused on his home state. Village Tavern has four successful restaurants in North Carolina – two in Winston-Salem, Greensboro, and Charlotte. “We have always wanted to go to Raleigh – it’s a natural extension for us,” said Richardson. “We have waited patiently looking for the perfect site in Raleigh for 15 years and we are beyond excited to be in North Hills – an exceptional place for people to gather. The synergy between Kane Realty, North Hills and Village Tavern is a perfect fit.”
Village Tavern features a scratch kitchen, where artisan recipes are prepared to order with top quality ingredients. Executive chef, Mary Grace Viado, came to Village Tavern in 2002 after graduating with highest honors from the Culinary Institute of America. During her time at CIA, she was honored with many awards including a prestigious James Beard Foundation Scholarship, Culinary Institute of America Service Award, and many more.
The North Hills location features an open kitchen and will offer an incredible indoor-outdoor dining experience with sliding glass doors that open directly to the new, active public plaza. For more information on Village Tavern, please visit VillageTavern.com.
