A new restaurant opened in Maplewood on September 2. Reeds American Table opened in the space previously occupied by Home Wine Kitchen, at 7322 Manchester Road. It’s the space previously occupied by Home Wine Kitchen, which closed on New Year’s Eve 2014.
The restaurant is under the management of executive chef, Matt Daughaday, former chef of Niche and Taste restaurants.
Feast Magazine was there on opening night, and reported that both the upstairs and downstairs are used, for a total of 5,100 square feet. “The facade of the restaurant got an alluring coat of red paint, while the interior features homey touches such as barn wood, Edison lights and personalized art,” Feast reports.
Daughaday told Feast he’s trying to offer a “family dinner table atmosphere.” He said it’s a “very approachable menu.” It includes soups and salads, small plates, snacks, sandwiches, large plates, cheeses and desserts.
Feast recommends the “bacon-fat fried cornbread, fried pickles with dill aioli and a vibrant smoked beet salad with whipped ricotta, orange, pickled shallot, nduja vinaigrette, mint and chive,” for an appetizer.
