Rails Steakhouse Chugging Towards Summer

"Good things come to those who wait"
In the case of Rails Steakhouse, we're just going to have to wait a little bit longer!  Judging from today's visit, it will be well worth it. Construction started two years ago and Jim Stathis, Design and Construction Manager, is hoping for a summer opening.
Today I joined Stathis and the Morris Chamber of Commerce for a sneak peak inside the 3-story timber framed structure and learned Rails is part of Towaco Crossing, a mixed use building that also has 7,500 square feet of retail space and 6 apartments.
       Stathis and his sassy, curly-topped wife, Lisa, envision Towaco Crossing to become the walk-able town center that Montville is lacking.
      The couple's passion and creativity is evident throughout Rails. They're planning a Speakeasy in the basement with a 1930's vibe, an atrium displaying sculpture from local artists, comfy couches in the lounge and cozy spaces for private parties. Private wine lockers for VIP members will hold up to a case of wine and no corkage fee will be charged. Truly innovative is another level of membership that will include car service. A fantastic idea for those that like to imbibe (and I do!).
       Of course, stunning design can't keep a restaurant open, the food and service is what keeps customers happy. Dining Operations Manager, Michael Mulligan (above), prepared an enticing selection for us to try. Mulligan graced our plates with an exquisitely charred Tomahawk steak, rosemary Shrimp, brussel sprouts with bacon and a layered gratin of potatoes with Maytag Bleu Cheese. Can't wait for this culinary train to get on track!

Hi Judy--so happy to see a new issue! And loved the Rails update. Just a heads up--your link to sign up for newsletter (Feedburner?) isn't working.
