Brookside by Day begins offering dinner
Brookside by Day, one of the most popular breakfast-lunch spots in town, now is offering dinner 5:30-9 p.m. Tuesday-Friday.
"A lot is going on in Brookside these days, and I thought we would see if we might be able to take advantage of the foot traffic the area is getting," owner Kyle Phillips said.
Better known simply as BBD, the restaurant is reprising its lunch menu for the dinner crowd with a variety of soups, salads, sandwiches, wraps, burgers, quesadillas and entrees such as chicken-fried steak, pork chops and fried shrimp.
Phillips has completed some remodeling inside and out and said he hopes to have a liquor license in the next few weeks.
BBD is located at 3313 S. Peoria Ave.
