February 5th 12:02pm, 2016



After four months of renovation, the space in The Chase Park Plaza that formerly housed Eau Bistro, which closed on Nov. 3, 2015, has been transformed into The Preston. The new space, freshly painted and completely renovated from floor to silverware, opened its doors Monday, Feb. 1 inside the hotel at 212 N. Kingshighway Blvd., in the Central West End. The bar was named for The Chase Park Plaza’s architect, Preston Bradshaw.

Up to 104 diners can order from more than 20 shareable small plates priced from around $6 (charred shishito peppers or citrus marinated olives) to $20 (bone-in short ribs or grilled lamb T-bone steak) from The Preston’s chef de cuisine, Collin Smelser. The hotel’s executive pastry chef, David Laufer and his team created four sweet endings: two citrus options and two chocolate options.The bar offers four signature cocktails and four modern classics, as well as red, white and sparkling wine by the glass and 12 bottled craft beers.

Food and drink menus will rotate seasonally. The Preston will also serve breakfast Monday to Saturday from 6:30 to 10:30 a.m. and Sunday brunch from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Regular evening hours are Sunday through Thursday from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 5 p.m. to midnight.
