Winner Winner Rotisserie and Fine Foods is rolling into town on a restored 1949 railroad dining car. The bistro, which will mostly feature food for takeaway, will be located at 9300 Highway 290 West in Oak Hill, is estimated to open in early 2018.
Owner Sarah Lindsey spent eight years in the kitchen of Royal Blue Grocery before starting this venture. Winner Winner will feature rotisserie chickens from Cobb Creek Farm, porchetta from Tender Belly, and roast lamb from Capra Foods Lamb Co-op, available by the pound or in a sandwich. To accompany the meats, the restaurant will serve a seasonal menu of veggies, soup, salads, and desserts, as well as wine and beer. Full menu below.
Lindsey calls the train car “a happy coincidence.” “I happened on the train car in searching for a small space to rent, and my take away business model paired nicely with the restrictions of the space,” she explains. “It is actually a dining car, so we are using the original kitchen, (with modifications) the original bar, and some of the original seating.”
While there will be some on-site seating, Winner Winner is mostly focused on takeaway (which is also available for the beer and wine). Hours will be Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Delis seem to be something of a trend this year. Italian sandwich shop La Matta just opened on the east side, a pastrami truck posted up near campus, and Biderman’s Deli has been getting rave reviews (not to mention the new location of Frank, if you’re one of those people).
