Palooza Restaurant in the Works

Former Dolce Lunas gets new life

PaloozaLogo-e1388157653879Catering company owner Jeff Tyler (Hot Dogs from Chicago, Bunslinger, Palooza Catering) has taken over the former Doce Lunas restaurant in Kenwood.

In the works is a gastropub with Chef Chris Hanson (a freelance chef who’s popped up at a number of local events and alum of the Santa Rosa Golf & Country Club) heading the kitchen.

BiteClub’s seen the preliminary menu, and it’s both approachable and nervy, with some of Hanson’s signature carnivorous creations: Savory cannoli , lemon pepper calamari, a beef marrow app, monkfish fish and chips and an ice cream sandwich with both hops and beer in the mix. Opening is slated for spring, but we’ll keep watch for the final date.
