Joe Russell, erstwhile barkeep at Kell’s Irish Pub downtown, is hanging out his own shingle in Wallingford: Russell’s (4111 Stone Way).
Russell’s aims to be a neighborhood pub and restaurant, with a small kitchen featuring niblets such as cheese plates, salads, and housemade pot pies. If beer and cocktails aren’t your fancy, they’ll have wine on tap, as well.
Yes, that’s wine on tap. Russell’s will feature Proletariat Wines, who’s goal it is to “bring high quality, otherwise expensively priced wines to restaurant diners at extremely reasonable prices. Proletariat’s premium wines from the best growing regions in the northwest are delivered through the keg direct to glass.”
Russell’s aims to open
this Friday, March 14th next Friday, March 21st.
Update: Just heard from Joe. Still waiting on permits, opening has been postponed a week, to Friday, March 21st.
