Last month, chef Logan Cox told Eater that his wood-fired, Mediterranean-inspired restaurant would be ready in August, and scrolling through Facebook, it looks like Homer might be ready any day now. The restaurant shows off its shiny new neon signage. “Big thank you to @nobleneonstudio for literally bringing our dreams to light! As well as @coco.kelley for tweaking and nailing down this font for us! I don’t think I’ll ever tire of this,” says the post.
Cox wants Homer, located at 3013 Beacon Ave. S, to become a neighborhood staple. He’s planning to keep the Mediterranean- and Middle Eastern-skewing menu of pitas and spreads, grilled vegetables, local shellfish, and fermented foods accessible, with prices between $6 and $22. He’ll also attract passersby with seasonal flavors of soft serve ice cream sold through a walk-up window.
Look for an opening date soon.
