restaurateurs Daniel and Lana Wright are looking to open their third restaurant, Pontiac Bourbon and BBQ
, at 1403 Vine St. this summer.
The Wrights, owners of Senate
and Abigail Street
, plan to focus Pontiac’s menu on barbeque favorites such as Texas brisket, Memphis-style ribs, Alabama-style chicken and Frito pie. The bar will be stocked with a variety of bourbon, whiskey and beer; there will also be a choice of sodas from the Wrights childhood.
Pontiac will have seating for about 60, and will offer take-out options by-the-pound. It will be open for lunch and dinner Tuesday-Sunday.
