Created with Admarket’s flickrSLiDR.

The barbecue and Southern-grub restaurant that Curtis Brown, a former chef at Bubby’s, is opening with Dov Charney as a backer is set to open for dinner service on Monday of next week, with brunch service launching that Saturday and Sunday. The Local stopped by The Cardinal just moments ago and found artist Sam Meyerson painting the North Carolina flag, a nod to Mr. Brown’s home state. As indicated on the menu below, sandwich and salad service will run from 4 p.m. till 6 p.m. The full dinner menu will be served from 6 p.m. till midnight on weekdays, until 1 a.m. on Saturdays, and till 11 p.m. on Sundays. The bi-level space is still coming together, but the above slideshow should give you a sense of what’s in store.
