A refurbished building on Main street Edgartown will become the newest bar and restaurant in the heart of the downtown village.

Formerly the Edgartown Deli, the building is owned by Patrick and Ted Courtney. Across the street, the Courtney brothers also own Port Hunter, the popular restaurant they opened four years ago.

Well-known Island native Chris Fischer will be the chef at the new place. Mr. Fischer is the former chef at the Beach Plum Inn and author of the Beetlebung Farm Cookbook, recently nominated for a prestigious James Beard award.

Edgartown selectmen signed off this week on plans for the restaurant, which stills needs approval from the zoning board of appeals and the state Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission.

Plans call for a small indoor seating area and 24 seats at five outside tables.

“Ten seats at a seated bar, some indoor seating and a little outdoor seating,” Patrick Courtney told the selectmen.

He said a mid-June opening is planned.
