The 808 Restaurant (Facebook) is scheduled to open 4 p.m. Wednesday, June 23.

The new Hawaiian-inspired concept has taken over the former Dexter’s location at 808 E. Washington Street [GMap] in Thornton Park, and is being helmed by Thornton Park royalty Wendy Connor from The Abbey (Facebook Website), and Todd Ulmer of Stardust Lounge (Facebook Website) and Aku Aku Tiki Lounge (Facebook Website).

Named after the address and the area code for Honolulu, The 808 will feature a “laid-back retro surf vibe with Hawaiian-inspired delicacies suitable for all palettes” including dishes like spam musubi

We first told you about the new concept HERE in March 2021.
