Cask + Cow has started selling burgers, beer and more on Lewiston's main drag.
The restaurant, 840 Center St., is in the building that last housed Bailey O'Riley's Village Pub, and before that Lewiston Village Pub. It started serving customers last month, said Jack Hornung, an owner.
Cask + Cow will offer a lineup of hamburgers ranging from a classic burger topped with cheddar ($13) to a patty flavored with black truffle and topped with garlic brie ($18).
Creative offerings from the burger list include the Hot Tempered Elvis ($15), with bananas, bacon and peanut butter, and the Afternoon Graze ($14), a vegetarian option with a black bean patty, grilled cucumber and asparagus, and sun-dried tomato aioli.
Other food offerings include Buffalo chicken rinds ($8), a selection of Ru's pierogi ($10), meatballs with San Marzano tomato sauce ($10), and Caesar, kale and wedge salads ($8-$9).
"Right now our food has been a hit. We're about 80-20 (percent) food and liquor," said Hornung. He has owned Third Street Tap Room in Niagara Falls for 13 years, and formerly owned Cactus Jack's in Niagara Falls.
The restaurant seats about 90 people, and has been redone inside with expanses of wood and large black and white photographs of Lewiston from past decades.
"I hope it finds a niche for itself," Hornung said. "With our craft beer and gourmet hamburgers, I hope we can become a piece of the puzzle that is the great food in Lewiston."
