The millions of dollars in upgrades to the dining options at The Orleans continue with the debut of the Bailiwick gastropub, replacing the shuttered Brendan’s Irish Pub.
Back in June, an estimated $3,600,000 in construction costs had been allocated for the complete transformation of the 9,699-square-foot space into a much more modern concept, self-described as "the hub of bites, sips & sounds."
Promising they are "here to have fun," live music and entertainment will be booked nightly. The lounge area will offer small plate options like "Japanese fish tacos" and New England seafood rolls to be paired with cocktails and 40 beers on draft. Guests can also sit around the large central bar, or in separate and distinct dining areas.
The main menu includes Wiener Schnitzel, steak frites, flatbreads, burgers and the $12 "Bailiwick Breakfast," made with "yukon potatoes, diced meatloaf, white & green onion, roasted red pepper sauce & two eggs." The restaurant has also programmed a late-night menu and a weekend brunch.
Closed on Tuesday and Wednesday, a "social hour" lounge menu has been created for 4 to 6 p.m every remaining day of the week, with $7 choices such as poutine, baked goat cheese, short rib chili and draft beers. Well drinks are priced at $5 during the two hours.
