Haid brings his 20 years’ fine dining background to REVEL, an upscale-yet-casual dining experience featuring a discerning menu of curated southern-style cuisine influenced by international flavors, according to a press release.

Serving as the anchor-point of The HUB—a mixed-use development with a community-building bent in the Chaffee Crossing area—REVEL represents a new direction for restaurants and a return to a town-center mentality that offers a place where community members will gather with neighbors and newcomers alike.

REVEL will feature a large, trail-facing indoor-outdoor patio and bar divided by a garage door. The space is designed to be an inviting place for people to gather in all seasons: warm and cozy in the winter, active and vibrant in the summer, and always welcoming for those who want excellent food, drinks, and company—even on a cycling break.

Stay tuned for menu announcements.
