Get ready for another entry to the local burger wars. Big Onion Tavern Group (Fatpour Tap Works, the Irish Oak, Diag, 404 Wine Bar, Derby), hope to open Woodie's Flat, a three-floor 120-seat spot, next month in the former home of Trattoria Roma. Trattoria Roma was sold in August after being hit with a foreclosure suit, closing soon after.
Ownership describes Woodie's Flat as a "hip dive bar, with a neighborhood feeling," naming it after a 54-inch wood-burning flattop grill that will be the centerpiece of the concept. "The Heavy Hitter" (half-pound beef burger, lettuce, tomato, caramelized onion, bacon, cheddar, fried egg on two grilled cheese sandwiches) will be among 12 burgers offered. Beverage choices will focus on craft beer.
Expect the opening sometime next month.
