Main Gate Square restaurant Wilko has passed the torch to the Dutch Eatery & Refuge, even though some Wilko signs are still up.
The restaurant maintains its light and airy feel, but has a new menu thanks to co-owner and executive chef Marcus van Winden. Guests can expect New American-style cuisine alongside classic Dutch dishes.
Although the Dutch is open now, they’re hosting an official grand opening from June 9 – 11 with happy hour specials all day long and bitterballen, a popular Dutch bar snack of beef or veal croquettes.
Here’s a sneak peek at some of their new menu items.
The Dutch Eatery & Refuge is located at 943 E. University Blvd. and can be reached at (520) 792-6684. Brunch is 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. weekdays, 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Happy hour is 3 – 6 p.m. daily. Keep up with the Dutch Eatery & Refuge on Facebook. For more information, visit thedutchtucson.com.
