Geared toward business folks—the venue is stocked with work stations and has chargers for Blackberry, iPhone, or Android devices available for rent—Chuck's Manufacturing opened in November. The 4,000-square-foot space has a private dining room that can seat 24 or hold two tables of eight. A lounge area can hold 25. Chef Justin Frankenberg, formerly of Parmount Events Catering, oversees the menu. Items include shrimp in phyllo dough with pepper jack fondue, seasonal soup shooters, and Ruben sandwiches. Specialty cocktails include Chuck's Cherry Coke, served in a tilted glass and made with cherry vodka, coke, and cherry-vanilla bitters.
