Overwood, at 220 N. Lee Street in Old Town, Alexandria, will be reopening their doors today, September 28, 2016, at 5:00 p.m.. Overwood closed on August 14, 2016 to make way for Myron Mixon’s Pit Master BBQ. So, what’s the story?
The BBQ restaurant is still set to take over Overwood later this fall. However, while the BBQ restaurant is waiting on equipment to arrive the space is not being used. So, today Overwood will reopen with a limited menu as opposed to just having the space be vacant.
There have been no interior design changes to the original Overwood space. There have been multiple large TVs strategically placed throughout the restaurant. This would lead one to believe that Myron Mixon’s BBQ place may be trying to allure the sports crowd to the restaurant.
If you are out and about on this rainy Wednesday, stop into Overwood and say “Hi” to Valentina and Jill. They look forward to seeing the regulars at this “Cheers” type restaurant/bar along with new faces.
