Reports of movement over at Encore Champagne Bar and Dining Room have been traveling through our tipline and the restaurant confirmed that they're in the process of reconfiguring the dining room. We're hearing that the dining area is currently inactive, though the lounge and bar remain open in Encore's front space.
The restaurant, bar and lounge which opened in the Gaslamp in January of this year, is also transitioning its kitchen. Founding executive chef Ryan Studebaker is moving on, and his once-diverse menu is now an edited list of apps, flatbreads and sandwiches.
As it move into this next phase, the bar will still focus on Champagne varieties (2-for-1 from 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday) and signature cocktails. Their new brunch dishes, serve from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Sunday, include a breakfast sandwich, cheesy eggs and French toast.
