We’ve been following along with the news of Buckminster’s since we first heard news of a restaurant opening in the former Burg’s Lounge location at 21st and Federal in April.

Now here’s a little update with new information about the food and drinks to be offered there, in addition to a peek at the restaurant’s interior.

Owner Michael Pasquarello and Chef Rob Marzinsky, are coming together to create this “neo-bistro” with menu items changing seasonally based on the local ingredients that are available. Dishes at Buckminster’s will be mostly snacks or small plates, ranging anywhere from $2 to $21. Dishes may include things like sunchoke fries, charred squid, keuka gold potato pierogi, “Gram’s” stuffed cabage, turkey mole, pork and apples an more.

The drink list at Buckminster’s will include a selection of beer, wine and craft cocktails. The draft system will include eight different beers, along with six wines. The cocktail menu will includes drinks between $10 and $15.

Buckminster’s is inspired by Buckminster Fuller, a mid-century architect, so you can expect to see some nods to his aesthetic in the design of the restaurant. The spot is being decorated with reclaimed furniture and decorations in the form of wall accents, vintage classroom desk chairs and more. The dining room will seat 40 people and the bar seats 14.

There’s no specific opening date just yet, but they’re still aiming for later this Fall. When the restaurant opens, they will be open for dinner starting at 5 p.m. Later on they will add brunch and lunch hours.
