Short Pump has a new restaurant this week with Park Lane Tavern in the former Keagan’s Restaurant & Tavern space at 2251 Old Brick Road.
This is the fourth Park Lane Tavern location.
The first Park Lane Tavern opened in 2005 and there are now three locations in Virginia: Hampton, Fredericksburg and Virginia Beach.
The Richmond location opened Aug. 29 and is be open for lunch and dinner daily, plus weekend brunch.
The restaurant's menu and decor is modeled on European taverns of no specific time period. The menu is heavy on the English pub side with a lot of American influences. Wings, chicken, steak, sandwiches, burgers, pizza and entree salads are all represented; and fish and chips, bangers and mash, Shepard's pie, and corned beef and cabbage are among the entree selections.
The beverage program boasts 24 taps for beer and a "comprehensive list of single malt scotches, small batch and single barrel bourbons."
Park Lane Tavern is in the West Broad Village center, in the space previously occupied by Keagan’s, which closed in December after nearly 10 years in business. The development has seen a wave of closures in the past year: Kona Grill closed in April, Ledo Pizza in February and Carolina Ale House in November.
