While the restaurant will open between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. for a neighborhood appreciation with a free menu tasting, Barn & Company officially opens to the public tonight at 7 p.m. The restaurant staged a preview with a limited menu two weeks ago during the Taste of Lincoln Avenue and early reviews showed chef Bob Zrenner and BBQ pitmaster Gary Wiviott's food has promise.

As reported in June, the casual dining room features a lot of reclaimed white elm from an old barn in Kansas, a massive 12-screen LCD panel, a bunch of whimsical pig paintings and a long bar featuring a number of small-batch spirits and a well-selected wine list. The 100-seat restaurant will soon be accompanied by a 75-seat courtyard that faces Wrightwood.

While the preview a couple of weeks ago had a scaled-back menu including pulled pork sandwiches and half-rack of baby back ribs, the full menu has a wide variety of BBQ dishes as well as other non-barbecue options. If you aren't drooling yet, peep the menu below.
