Jolly Pumpkin shutters-Bandit opens

After serving up their iconic brews in Royal Oak for over five years, The Jolly Pumpkin Restaurant and Taphouse on Main and Fifth Streets in Royal Oak has called it quits. In its place, Mission Restaurant Group has launched a new southern-style eatery dubbed “Bandit Tavern & Hideaway.” “The menu is a fun, unique blend of scratch-made traditional and creative combinations,” said Kristin Anderson, executive chef, Bandit Tavern & Hideaway. “We’ll be featuring dishes that include our pimento cheese dip, bison chili and a bone-in ribeye with chimichurri sauce. Everyone will find a favorite. We work to handcraft distinctive dishes in a friendly, casual environment. From time-to-time, we’ll throwback to some of our favorite dishes from previous concepts or show off some new creative recipes.” Bandit features a full-bar, hand-crafted cocktails and a large list of Jolly Pumpkin and North Peak beers. There will also be zero proof offerings, local craft beer and a top-notch wine list. Downstairs from Bandit, the Hideaway will host seasonal pop-ups such as Griswold’s Hideaway, a holiday bar inspired by National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, which will debut after Thanksgiving. 419 S Main Street, Royal Oak,
