The Post Crescent reports that the popular Houdini's Escape Gastropub in Appleton, Wisconsin, has expanded. The eatery has more than doubled its original footprint, going from 2,300-square-feet to 5,100-square-feet, plus a 1,500-square-foot patio.
Houdini's Escape is a local success story started when Eric Jacobson and Linda Mischler opened the small bar in 2013 and named it after Appleton's favorite son.
"We went through about 40 revisions of the plan to where it was acceptable to me," said Jacobson. "The goal was to keep the same feel that the little place had."
Houdini's Escape Gastropub is located at 1216 S. Oneida St. in downtown Appleton. You can check out their menu and more at their official website and Facebook page.
