Development work on The Poison Chalice bar and Chalice restaurant in the old Da Vinci’s bar is now well underway with the bar already open for business and the restaurant, which will offer a broad menu but with a special emphasis on fish dishes, is due to open at the end of November or early December.
Terry Daneshyar told dh that the transformation of Da Vinci’s into the Poison Chalice was going to schedule with a dividing wall creating a separate, secluded restaurant space and new furnishings creating a warm and welcoming bar area.
“The bar will continue to show important sporting fixtures for our regular clients but will also feature a champagne Happy Hour on Fridays for that end-of-the-week celebration and we will also offer a special Poison Chalice cocktail, served in a chalice, as the highlight of an exciting new cocktail menu.” said Terri.
So why the name change? “We wanted to reflect a very distinct move away from being an Italian restaurant to offering a more rounded menu. We liked the idea of The Chalice Restaurant and felt we could have some fun and create a talking point with the Poison Chalice cocktail idea.”
A new website and Facebook page will be up and running soon. Why not pop into the new bar and keep an eye on dickensheath.net for more details of the restaurant launch!
