Construction is underway for The Bartolotta Restaurants newest concept, The Rumpus Room, a gastro pub which will combine unique flavors, an expansive selection of craft beers and a casual atmosphere located at 1030 N. Water Street.
The Rumpus Room will take over the site of Eagan’s restaurant which closed this past May.
The Bartolotta Restaurants owner, Joe Bartolotta, recalls fond memories of lively gatherings and the energetic atmosphere of his fathers tavern.
The new pubs name, The Rumpus Room, was inspired by the tavern Joe’s father established and ran for nine years, in the mid 1950s and early 1960s at 29th St. and North Ave. The name Rumpus Room means a place where people come together for entertainment, fun, camaraderie and recreation.
My dad provided inspiration for my work with The Bartolotta Restaurants and opening The Rumpus Room is one way we can pay tribute to his influence on our organization and the community. said Joe Bartolotta.
The new gastro pub is an opportunity to embrace a casual dining experience that combines your favorite restaurant and bar, unites them together with elements of reasonably priced quality food in a comfortable bar environment.
The group will lean on the experience of a few of their current distinguished chefs to extend an already expansive array of culinary offerings. Under the direction of Paul Bartolotta and Corporate Chef Adam Siegel, Bacchus Chef de Cuisine, Andrew Ruiz, will take the role as Executive Chef of The Rumpus Room.
The Rumpus Room is set to open in Fall, 2011.
