Several new details on Homewood’s upcoming fine dining restaurant, The Cottage on Dixie, were revealed by owner Glenna Elvery during .
A general manager, chef and assistant manager have all been hired, according to Elvery, but the names of all three are still under wraps in order to protect the security of their current jobs. Despite the secrecy, however, Elvery said the general manager has five years experience and the head chef has ran six previous restaurants.
“We are going to be a very expensive restaurant,” Elvery said. “Our food is all gourmet. It’s as locally grown as it can be. The meats that we use will be pastured so that you’re not getting all those lovely things they put in meat anymore.”
The Cottage on Dixie is taking an interesting, perhaps bold concept on their menu. Rather than confining themselves to a set cuisine, Elvery says the restaurant will take on a broader scope.
“Every month, we’re going to be shifting to a different part of the world,” Elvery said. “You’re going to get all kinds of variety from us.”
The first world cuisine in focus? French.
Elvery said the Cottage on Dixie is going to be open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. every day. She made specific note of the intended Sunday brunch, which, she says, is a rarity in the area.
“I hope that, after the first two months, we’ll be reservation only,” Elvery said. “Our ultimate goal is to attract people from the city to come out here.”
The restaurant is tentatively opening around October or November.
