More on Magnolia

Magnolia avenue is exploding with new business.

 In early 2014, 24 Plates, a small plates restaurant concept, will open at 407 W. Magnolia Ave. Owner Joel Kleven is a former chiropractor with a longtime passion for food. The name says it all. Patrons will find 24 plates on the menu. Artwork from local artists will be featured in the 3,300-square-foot space and live acoustic guitar will entertain visitors.

Everyone knows that drinking and driving don’t mix, but Frank Kent Motor Co. is combining fine wine and automobiles in a new concept on the corner of Magnolia Avenue and Adams Street. Owners Will Churchill and Corrie Wilson hope to create and open-air environment on the 8,000-square-foot property for wine connoisseurs and car enthusiasts.
Other Magnolia openings include Proper and Spice. Proper will serve unique cocktails in a hip bar environment, and Spice is a Thai eatery we are anxious to learn more about.
