1. Bellwether

Restaurateur Jonathan Insetta plans to open his newest venture called Bellwether at 100 North Laura Street in early April 2017.  With a menu similar to Insetta's Black Sheep, the 120-seat casual yet sophisticated restaurant will offer an eclectic mix of timeless fare for lunch and dinner. As an example, the 4,700-square-foot restaurant's burger program will include beef, chicken, the beet burger veggie option, a fried chicken sandwich and a “gooey cheeseburger.”
