Roaming Bison Tavern opened Aug. 5 on Hertel Avenue, offering a menu of smoked meat and more.
The restaurant, 732 Hertel Ave., was last the Nortel Grill.
Owner Greg Herzog said the kitchen was putting out a limited menu for now as the operation gets under way. "We'll be adding as we go along."
To start, there's regular and smoked chicken wings ($11, 14), fresh-cut fries ($4), and tacos in smoked pulled pork, chicken or beef ($8). Roaming Bison also will offer "mac-ancini," which are like arancini fried risotto balls, except they're made from mac and cheese.
Sandwiches, which come with fries, include a bison burger ($15), beef burger ($11) and fried Nashville chicken sandwich ($11).
Barbecue offerings are limited to the smoked pulled pork sandwich ($10) at present, Herzog said, but will expand to include brisket, pork ribs and more.
The tavern opens at 4 p.m., and will add lunch hours in a few weeks, Herzog said. Phone: 235-8281.
