The Smiling Bison Restaurant & Bar opens this evening at 745 Bennett Rd (just north of Colonial). The restaurant takes over the old Redlight Red Light space. Food isn’t anything new for the owners of The Smiling Bison, they’ve been operating a popular food cart of the same name. The truck can be found most Monday evenings at the Audubon Park Community Market.
The restaurant features an eclectic variety of items from sandwiches like their smiling bison burger and buffalo chicken dog to plates such as kale caesar salad and duck boudin.
The hours operation for The Smiling Bison Restaurant & Bar are:
Tuesday – Thursday: 5pm — 12am
Friday & Saturday: 5pm — 2am
Closed Sunday & Monday (although you can find them at the Audubon Market on Monday)
Here’s the menu from their soft opening but keep in mind some items might/will change.
