Nick’s Roast Beef, an Old City staple, is sending their name up in flames.
As of March 31, 2016, Nick’s Roast Beef at 16 S. 2nd Street will be known as Nick’s Bar and Grille. The new name will debut to coincide with the addition of a new barbecue menu using house-smoked meats.
Owner Joseph ‘Joey Dog’ Schultice, along with his fiancee Nicole Viechnicki, have already secured the smoker and been developing the new dishes with their kitchen team.
New cocktails and spirits will be added to the drink menu, and customers can look for drink tastings with local purveyors.
Along with the new name and menu, customers can enjoy changes in the dining room with new custom-built tables, a group table, new high-tops, renovations to the walls and ceilings, and new decor.
New barbecue dishes will preview on Fridays leading up to the March 31, 2016 roll-out. Dishes will be made in small-batches on Friday nights when “Old City regulars” can come give them a try. They are first come, first serve. In early March, the dining room will be renovated to include custom-designed tables and whiskey barrel high-tops, a new community tasting table, old-time Old City imagery on the walls, and embellishments to the walls and ceilings.
New dishes will include:
Smoked Applewood Chicken Wings
St. Louis BBQ Spare Ribs
Pulled Pork with Jalapeno Slaw
Pulled Pork Sweet Potatoes
Other menu items will include: a 7-layer “Jar-BQ” parfait, mac ‘n cheese, house-made sauces, and their long-time dishes such as the Ground Bacon Burger, Roast Beef and Pork, six flavors of chicken wings and other bar favorites. Along with the new dishes, look for whiskey and spirits to accompany the menu.
