StillwaterEats!: Lion’s Main Plans Spring Opening in the Grand Garage

A new restaurant and lounge will open this spring in the Grand Garage in downtown Stillwater.

Dave and Kris Najarian — owners of Nelson’s Ice Cream — are opening Lion’s Main, a restaurant and lounge, in the space formerly occupied by Reve 324 (Reve Bistro and Bar relocated to the Chestnut Building).

“Lion’s Main will offer well-executed casual cuisine, local brews and specialize in classic cocktails with an artisan twist,” a new release announcing plans for Lion’s Main reads. “Not only will the quality of Lion’s Main handcrafted drinks and elegantly simplistic food offerings distinguish them, but the comfortable and upbeat atmosphere offered to their guests is what will really set the restaurant and lounge apart.”

Dave and Kris Najarian’s son, Daved, is the general manager of Lion’s Main. The management team also includes Master Bartender Marcus Clark and Chef James Eaves.

Lion’s Main is hosting a hiring fair on Sunday, Feb. 15 and Sunday Feb. 22 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. Attend the open house of you’re interested in submitting an application and resume and having a short preliminary interview for wait staff, greeters, kitchen staff and bartenders.

The job fair will be held at 324 Main St. S .

Finalized “Bites & Libations Menus,” and a grand opening date, will be announced soon.
