After a trial run on Saturday, Avondale Estates's newest breakfast spot is about ready to open. Rising Son, from husband-and-wife team Hudson and Kathryn Fitzgerald Rouse, will begin service Tuesday morning in the space that previously housed The Bishop at 124 North Avondale Rd. Hudson is a veteran of Reynoldstown breakfast favorite Home Grown, and Kathryn has provided craft sodas to The General Muir.
Rising Son intends to serve patrons Tuesday through Sunday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., according to a Facebook announcement. The restaurant will make one exception this Sunday when it shuts down so the Rouses can participate in the Smoke & Glory Smoked Pork Showdown.
Plans for Rising Son were first announced last month, and the team made it clear the restaurant will take inspiration from the Rouses' backgrounds.
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.
The Rising Son team didn't do much to overhaul its space, only applying "cosmetic touch-ups and adding our personal touch." The restaurant's official description indicates a laid-back spot: "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.
