Look Inside New Elizabeth Restaurant The Stanley


THE STANLEY, the new restaurant from Paul Verica, will open to the public in Elizabeth on Tuesday. Verica, who was previously the chef and owner of Heritage Food + Drink in Waxhaw, says that this new concept is "going to be more small plates-focused, just because I feel like we’ve always been able to play more with the small plates." Below, get a peek at what the restaurant will be serving. Make reservations for opening night on Resy.
