-The new food menu will continue to focus on Italian food, but return to its roots as a dudded-up dinner destination for a classy night out.
-No word yet on the plan for music going forward, but word on the street is live music, both indoors and on their outdoor stage will continue to be a feature down at Repeal 18th.
