Stems & Skins co-owners Justin Croxall and Matt Tunstall will open a new “seafood-based” eatery called Three Sirens Restaurant in November, Tunstall told the City Paper Monday. Stems executive chef Julian Lippe will helm the Three Sirens kitchen at 1067 East Montague Ave., a space previously occupied by YoBo Cantina Fresca, steps from the popular natural wine-focused bar.
“We have signed a lease on a new restaurant right across the street. The timing kind of couldn’t be better to give back to the neighborhood again,” Tunstall said, describing Three Sirens as a full-service restaurant that will offer lunch, brunch and dinner. “We’ll pull from Abundant Seafood in the neighborhood and things like that.”
According to Tunstall, a second concept has been in the works for years, but the right space never opened up — until now. Lippe, who has expanded Stems & Skins small-plate style menu since taking over as executive chef, will lead both kitchens, focusing on more traditional appetizers and entrees at Three Sirens. Wines will be “all coastal Mediterranean,” and there will be cocktails on tap, Tunstall said.
Three Sirens Restaurant is targeting a Nov. 1 opening. For more information, follow Three Sirens on Instagram @threesirenschs.
