Union Station

Brent Finnegan -- October 14th, 2008

Last month there was a story in the DNR about the purchase of the old Whetsel Seed on the corner of Liberty and Market. This afternoon, HDR announced that David Gordon and Cassandra Baker will be opening an “upscale” restaurant in the building called Union Station, along with partners Sirena Baker and Cameron Grant. According to the release, the eatery will “incorporate elements of a bygone era into the renovation, floor design, server uniforms and even the menu itself.”

Sounds like it might be similar to the defunct Hardware Store in Charlottesville. Owners anticipate a summer 2009 opening.
