Billiards may return to Shirlington as a new pool hall looks to open next week.
The restaurant hopes to have “a busy atmosphere with great food,” said Fulghum. It’s currently waiting on some permits from the county before it can open, but hopes to have those by Thursday.
In the meantime, Chester’s owners are hanging the restaurant’s new sign and putting the final touches on its menu.
The menu currently includes appetizers like chicken tenders, buffalo wings and crab cakes, salads, soups and a raw bar. The restaurant is opening with a special of barbecue and “all you can eat salad” for $8.75.
The menu will mostly contain American cuisine, “and everything is pretty much under $10,” Fulghum said.
Once open, the restaurant is planning to serve food from 11 a.m. midnight Monday through Wednesday, and until later at night on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. It will be open until 11 p.m. Sunday, according to Fulghum.
