'Gastropub' Called {Pub}licity Opening Soon in Bellevue

Posted By on Tue, Oct 30, 2012 at 2:14 PM

Bellevue is getting a new spot that its owners describe as a gastropub. The quirkily punctuated {Pub}licity is in the works in the Kroger center on Highway 70S (not far from one of my favorite wine stores, Iroquois).

The new pub fills the space formerly held by Snappy Tomato Pizza. In fact, it’s the same ownership team, made up of local entrepreneurs Kevin Alexandroni, Simon Sedek and Uzi Shmueli. They decided to ditch the Snappy Tomato franchise and serve up craft beer and comforting pub fare instead. (The chef, Liz Standridge, cooked at the Iron Pork Chop and Battle Ground Brewery.)

General manager Melinda Johnson said the place will have a neighborhood hangout vibe, with 10 beers on tap and a selection of “classic cocktails with a modern twist.”

{Pub}licity, at 7073 Highway 70S, is expected to open around the second week of November.

A version of this story appeared in my Food Biz column in this week's print edition of The City Paper and online in the Nashville Post.
