A new Mediterranean restaurant opens this week in the downtown space at 130 College St. that previously housed the Arcade dance club. The Twisted Laurel Eatery and Lounge opens to the public on Wednesday, Oct. 1, offering a large menu of pizzas, subs, salads, pastas, traditional Greek specialties, desserts and more.
The remodeled 6,400-square-foot space features a patio and an upstairs lounge that doubles as a private event space. The restaurant will be open for lunch and dinner and also offers a late-night menu and two full bars with 24 beers on tap.
Most menu items hover within the $8-12 range, with several gluten-free and vegetarian options available. Pizzas, which come in 10-inch and 12-inch sizes, are $12-$15 depending on size and toppings. A generous kids menu features everything from burgers to grilled cheese pita to ravioli, all for about $4-$6 each. Gluten-free buns are available for an extra $1.75.
Twisted Laurel launched its first location in August in Weaverville. For updates about daily specials, look for @TwistedLaurel on Twitter.
