Backyard on Broadway will feature items created by chef Craig Brewer, such as brisket burgers, pizzas, cheesesteak sandwiches, chicken and waffles and traditional side options like loaded tater tots and fried artichokes. On weekends, barbecue will be added into the mix.

“Nobody wanted to be closed, but this was a chance to sort of reinvent our business,” said co-owner Andrew Toscano. “We have changed the overall concept, design for our seating, and have made changes in just about every way we could.”
