Rumors have been swirling about the fate of Eddie's, which shuttered in August at 3501 30th Street.
Eater can confirm that the hospitality team behind Ocean Beach's Raglan Public House and Queenstown Public House in Little Italy is planning to bring a taste of New Zealand to the North Park space with a new restaurant due by early Spring 2015.
Co-owner PJ Lamont told Eater that it'll likely be called Dunedin, after a hip surf town in the Otaga region of New Zealand. Though Dunedin will be its own unique concept, it will have some kinship with Raglan's breezy beach style with longtime design collaborator Michael Soriano at the helm.
Lamont says they plan to reconfigure the corner spot, secured with help from Capital Real Estate Ventures' Justin Earley, so that most of the eatery's seating will be outdoors. The menu will be similar to Queenstown's, centered around their signature burgers, but a bigger kitchen here means they will expand brunch offerings and introduce New Zealand pastries and desserts along with 24 taps of beer and cask engines for beer and wine.
