Escape to Houdini's Gastropub

Houdini's hometown of Appleton Wisconsin will soon have "Houdini's Escape Gastropub." According to the Post Crescent, the eatery is in the works at 1216 S. Oneida St. The building was most recently the Recovery Room bar near St. Elizabeth Hospital.

Owners Fortino Solano and Josh Woltman initially thought they could renovate quickly, but have since stepped back to take more time to renovate the old building. "We’re not sure on an exact opening date yet," says Woltman. "We have been involved in many design choices and are paying attention to every detail."

Above is a photo of what the finished building will look like. I'll take a Hardeen Burger with a side of Mama's Fries.

UPDATE: Fortino Solano is not longer involved in the project. Josh Woltman and Sous Chef Shaylen Hietpas are now solely responsible for the upcoming Gastropub.
