30 East Main restaurant reopens in Uniontown
30 East Main has re-opened in Uniontown.
The restaurant is now managed by partners Frank Sacco and Roger Clatterbuck, and has undergone a few changes in menu and atmosphere.
"This is a total and complete change from the original restaurant," said Sacco. "Roger and I have created a tavern that is really inspired by the historic nature of Fayette County and the original 13 colonies."
The menu is derived from the agriculture and fisheries of colonial times. It will focus on local and regional food items, such as Atlantic coastal fish.
The restaurant will also feature a full-service bar that will specialize in craft beers.
"All of the beers that we offer are being brewed in areas that were a part of the original 13 colonies before the American Revolution," said Sacco. "Of our 24 beers on tap, 18 are craft beers, and we have about 38 beers by the bottle, 30 of which are craft beers."
The restaurant will feature a comfortable atmosphere made up of exposed brick walls, booths made by local craftsmen, and other details that reflect the age and history of the building.
Additionally, artwork by Burton Morris will adorn the walls of the dining room, featuring pieces that focus on prominent local contributors including Robert Eberly, Joe Hardy, and Frank Lloyd Wright.
"Each piece is beautiful and unique," said Sacco. "They're called night stands, which are Morris' way of doing a tribute to someone by researching them and creating a picture that includes items you might find on that person's night stand."
The restaurant will keep the name 30 East Main, since the address hasn't changed. However, Sacco and Clatterbuck hope that patrons adopt the name An American Tavern when describing the restaurant.
"We hope that in time, as people get to know us, they will change the name themselves by calling it 30 East Main: An American Tavern," said Sacco. "We'll let the public decide that and be the guide."
Sacco also hopes that 30 East Main will be known as "everyman's establishment," as it will cater to a broader range of patrons at a more affordable price.
"We're looking for an average lunch check to be around $10 including the beverage, and there's nothing on the dinner menu over $19.95," said Sacco.
"We don't perceive ourselves as expensive, just high class. We'd like to give the best quality service and the highest quality foods, but we want to present that at a value price."
One of the major changes that the management will focus on will be catering to the busy lives of their patrons.
"We recognize the importance of getting people in and out quickly for lunch, and we realize that most of the patrons will be people who work downtown," said Sacco. "We know people's lives are busy and are filled with deadlines, so we're trying to cater to that in a quick and effective manner."
30 East Main is currently open for lunch and dinner with a limited menu. A wider variety of food selections will be added in time for the grand opening event to be held Sept. 24. Tours and food samples will be given, and Froggy radio will be present.
"It's going to be a festive event," said Sacco.Additional Information:
