Avondale Estates is getting a new breakfast spot from a couple of industry veterans. Rising Son, brought to you by husband-and-wife team Hudson and Kathryn Fitzgerald Rouse, will replace The Bishop at 124 North Avondale Road. Hudson previously spent time in the kitchen at Reynoldstown breakfast favorite Home Grown, and Kathryn has provided craft sodas to The General Muir.
The Rouses announced their new venture on Facebook and indicated Rising Son will be in business soon: "We will be returning from our 'last' vacation (for a long long time) on the 21st of this month. We will be posting official menus and hours at that time. Nothing major will be done to the space except for cosmetic touch-ups and adding our personal touch." Based on the announcement, it sounds like the restaurant will take inspiration from Home Grown.
Just a few things we will be serving at Rising Son,
Locally roasted coffee, freshly pressed juice, all natural hand crafted sodas (back in it yall 100%), herbal-aids, classic cocktails, wine on tap, local beer on tap.
Classic breakfast items such as local grits, hot biscuits, local bacon and sausage and house jelly.
Some lunch items will include fresh big salads, grain bowls, featured sandwiches and our meat and three selections.
Meat and Three options include country fried steak, chicken, pork chopS, fish, brisket, pot pie and farmer friendly veggies, casseroles and salads.
Further details haven't been released, but the restaurant's "about" section on Facebook makes it clear Rising Son will be down to earth: "Hudson and Kathryn Rouse were made by the blue collar and aim to please the blue collar. To fill the belly and warm the soul. Real food for Real people."
The Bishop shuttered last November, closing up shop after a year and a half of business.
