A new cocktail and small bites spot, The Lounge at Field & Tides, just opened next door to its namesake restaurant, giving diners a place to grab pre-dinner snacks in the Heights.
The new venture at 705 East 11th Street debuted inside a revamped 1940’s gas station. Wyndy Ramirez of Wynne Design Works and Gino Vian of Merchant to Market redesigned the 700 square-foot space by introducing sailing-themed decorative elements, industrial metal, exposed Edison bulbs, and 100-year-old oak among the original brick walls and concrete floors. The Lounge features indoor seating for nearly 30 with a full bar and additional seating on an outdoor patio. Indoor/outdoor capacity is 50 guests and 80 guests for non-seated special events.
Chef Travis Lenig and business partner Chico Ramirez conceived of their new spot as a “comfortable place to gather” for diners who are waiting for a table at their restaurant next door. The Lounge will serve an abbreviated selection of Gulf Coast and Southern-inspired eats found in their restaurant. Summer dishes include Middle Eastern beef tartare served with yogurt, mint, and lavash bread; braised octopus with roasted potatoes, chorizo, and chimichurri; and venison with date labneh (Greek yogurt), and blackberry reduction. Brunch is served on Saturdays and Sundays.
The Lounge will be open Tuesday through Sunday. Stay tuned for hours of operation.
