Night Heron, the brand new bar and eatery from Agricole Hospitality, has officially opened its doors in Montrose.

The restaurant opened in a hurry at 1601 West Main Street, just a little over a month after it was announced. Agricole Hospitality co-owner and Coltivare chef Ryan Pera has long been a Montrose resident, and named Night Heron for the birds that nest in the decades-old oak trees on North and South Boulevards. The bar plans to offer a neighborhood vibe with exciting food and a solid menu of drinks.

To lead the kitchen, Pera and Weber tapped Jacob Pate, a former line cook at Coltivare and, most recently, sous chef at Nobie’s. Pate will oversee a menu of simple plates, ranging from Gulf clams served Singaporean-style in fermented black bean sauce, chiles, tomatoes, and mint to a 44 Farms burger topped with smoked cheddar. Most excitingly, the most expensive item on the menu, a slow-roasted jerk chicken dish served with kohlrabi and pickled pineapple, tops out at $16.

Cocktail guru Julie Rogers was in charge of developing the bar’s cocktail menu, which offers a selection of “drinks [that] are the canon of America’s classic drinking culture.” As such, familiar libations like the Salty Dog are given ingredient upgrades (think fresh honeysuckle and Himalayan pink salt). There’s also a brief menu of dessert drinks, including a frozen riff on Vietnamese iced coffee made with rum, coconut molasses, and palm sugar.

Night Heron is now officially open for cocktail and dinner service. It will be open from 2 p.m. to midnight on the weekdays, 2 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Fridays, 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. on Saturday, and 11 a.m. to midnight on Sunday.
