Buffalo Wild Wings is open in Goshen with a new look and a new menu.
The walls didn't move in the restaurant, but there is new furniture, carpet and more televisions. The smallest television you'll find is 42 inches — and there are 57 of them, according to Bret Robertson, regional manager.
The bar part of the restaurant at 1829 Rieth Blvd., Goshen, didn't expand, but has a new layout, he said.
The chain introduced a new menu nationally while the restaurant was closed in July, so when it reopened there were flatbread pizzas and other new items available.
The restaurant on U.S. 33 has been celebrating with special events, including a tent party this past weekend.
“So far everyone seems to enjoy the new look,” Robertson said.
• I neglected to include the hours or address of Antojitos Mexicanos in the column last week. The restaurant is at 102 Middlebury St., Elkhart. Its hours are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Thursday and Saturday and 11 to 9 Friday. Phone is 574-333-2325. You should also know it doesn't have a public restroom, does accept credit cards and isn't as handicapped accessible as some other restaurants.
• The first Come to the Table meal has a waiting list, but a few seats could become available. A total of 300 are expected for the fundraising meal at Coppes Commons to benefit Family Christian Development Center in Nappanee. A total of 24 chefs or farms signed on to serve dishes at the four-hour, farm-to-table meal starting at 6 p.m. Saturday, according to Karen Sherer Stoltzfus, FCDC director. Tickets are $60. Information: 574-773-2149 or www.fcdcin.org.
• Biggby Coffee will open its first Elkhart County location at 195 C.R. 6, Elkhart, on Tuesday. Hours will be 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday to Saturday and 7 to 9 Sunday. This is just the second Indiana location for the Michigan-based chain. Ravneet Singh is the owner of the Elkhart restaurant.
• Mark your calendars: Zoo Brew 2012 at Potowatomi Zoo will be 7 to 10 p.m. Sept. 8. Tickets are on sale. Iechyd Da Brewing Co. is pouring at the event, as well as several other festivals this month and next, according to a press release from co-owner Summer Lewis.
• Reader Dina H. asked who might be willing to cater a brunch on Labor Day for 25 to 50 people. It's a great question because brunch isn't the most common meal to cater, particularly on a holiday Monday. I suggested Adam's Bistro, Mini Delights and Antonio's as possiblities, but are there others? Perhaps Matterhorn? Let me know if you have other leads for her.
