Update on 47 Scott, Downtown's Newest Restaurant

Posted By on Wed, Apr 28, 2010 at 5:38 PM

Nicole Flowers, the former manager of 58 Degrees and Holding Company, says she and Travis Reese, formerly of the B Line, are teaming up to open the new downtown eatery 47 Scott.

Flowers says renovations to the space at 47 Scott Ave. are nearly complete, and the menu is finalized. Expect steaks, burgers, rotating seasonal specials and a brief and affordable wine list. A bar menu will feature items such as homemade fries, a grilled-cheese platter that serves several people and a cheese plate, among other items.

The atmosphere will fall somewhere between the upscale feel at the now-defunct 58 Degrees and the casual vibe at B-Line. The menu tops out at $16, with most entrées in the $12 range.

"If I had to whittle it down to one word, it would be 'comfortable,'" Flowers said.

Dave Baker, who most recently worked at Maynards Market and Kitchen, will be head chef, said Flowers. Baker has also trained under chef Albert Hall, owner and chef at Acacia at St. Philip's.

Flowers also said the location has a patio that's shaded by nearby buildings after 3:30 p.m. That sounds like a downtown happy hour just waiting to happen.

A grand opening is scheduled for Saturday, May 8.
