FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE)—It’s the 1930s, buildings are laced in brick, there are tin ceilings and copper pipes and of course, prohibition is in full swing. Or at least that’s the feeling Fort Wayne’s famous Cosmos restaurant owners are hoping to bring with the new restaurant Hideout 125.
The name comes from the day the twenty-first amendment, which ended prohibition, was ratified, on December 5, 1933. It coincidentally is the birthday for a partner in the business, Brian Shreffler.
The steakhouse will serve classic cocktails in honor of the 1930s theme as well as craft beer and wine from wineries in the 1930s.
Shreffler said Hideout 125 is currently working on menu prices, but the restaurant does plan to keep the entrees affordable for the Fort Wayne market.
Shreffler said to look for the Chicken Pot Pie appetizer that has a specially topped crust with fried chicken skin and asparagus wrapped in prosciutto.
Hideout 125 is scheduled to open July 7 in the old Noodle Bowl location in the Pine Valley shopping center at 10350 Coldwater Road.
