113 Main set to open before Christmas in downtown Oswego

Oswego’s newest restaurant, 113 Main, is set to open its doors before the year’s end – before Christmas – General Manager Matt Verde said.

Located along Main Street, the restaurant sits on the ground level of a new three-story commercial building constructed on the former site of the old village hall.

“In the situation we find ourselves in right now, our plan is in the next [week] to be open,” Verde said.

Because of current COVID-19 mitigations, services will include carryout and delivery, as well as limited indoor dining under safe and sanitary conditions with socially distanced tables [as permitted].

Delivery services will be available through major services, including Uber Eats, GrubHub and DoorDash, but Verde said that the plan is for 113 Main to develop its own internal delivery service using restaurant employees. Curbside carryout also will be available.

Including the bar and dining room seating, the restaurant normally can seat 150 patrons, Verde said.

Exposed brickwork is heavily featured throughout the restaurant’s interior. The warehouse-style is evident throughout with sealed concrete floors, simple designs and woodwork, and exposed black duct work across the ceiling.

The menu for 113 Main showcases a variety of influences, including four types of tacos, seared ahi tuna salad, a prime rib Philly sandwich, burgers, a 14-ounce rib-eye or 10-ounce filet, seasonal cheesecakes and chocolate lava cake with whipped cream and blackberries.

A website for 113 Main has been created at www.113main.com to keep eager patrons up to date.
