Heavy Restaurant Group, the folks behind Purple Café and Wine Bar, Barrio, Lot No. 3 and Cast Iron Studios, is turning 12 this year. And to celebrate the company’s successful years in business, it’s added a new restaurant to its portfolio: The Commons. The new restaurant has sort of an interesting structure – it starts out in the morning offering coffee, pastries and sandwiches, and as the day progresses, the restaurant takes on a full service approach, adding lighter fare like sandwiches and salads, and drink offerings from local wineries, distilleries and breweries. Dinner offerings at The Commons will include house-made snacks such as maple-braised pork belly and entrees such as chicken pot pie. According to David Yusen, director of marketing and public relations, guests can also expect special dinner themes such as “BBQ Night” and “Breakfast for Dinner” at The Commons.
