The new venture from MAP Management (the group that created 5Church), draws inspiration from Grant Wood’s iconic painting American Gothic and the two people who modeled for the painting—the artist’s sister, Nan, and his dentist, Dr. Byron McKeeby. The restaurant, which will take over the former Vinnie’s Raw Bar spot, will be transformed into a turn-of-the-century-inspired space with accents including reclaimed barn wood tables and custom cabinetry. “A place that feels like part of the neighborhood,” says partner Patrick Whalen.
