Soon-to-be April showers are bringing new restaurants to the 574. Plus, the promise of spring weather has us ready for Easter and all of the treats that come with it. 

TAPASTRIE OPENING ’AS SOON AS POSSIBLE’ IN SOUTH BEND 

Tapas and wine go together hand-in-glove, and a new restaurant with both of those things will open as soon as the owners can get ready in South Bend. 

Tapastrie is moving into the former location of The Vine, 103 W. Colfax Ave., and will start serving up the small plates as soon as the remodeling if finished and the liquor license is approved, according to the original story on Flavor 574.

The restaurant is co-owned by Carol and Terry Meehan, who are also proprietors of Fiddler’s Hearth just across the way. 

THE JERKY SHOP OPENS IN WARSAW 

Life’s too short to fold fitted sheets, drink bad coffee, or, in the case of Thomas Bentele, eat bad jerky. 

The Jerky Shop, 206 S. Buffalo St. in Warsaw, is open and offers more unique jerky flavors — mango, dill pickle and teriyaki, just to name a few from the story on Flavor 574

Bentele and his wife, Lisa, sell about 300 jerky per day and are looking to hire more people to keep up with demands. 

WHERE TO EAT FOR EASTER 2015

Easter is only a week away and, though the Easter Bunny has time to stock up on goodies to leave hidden, it’s not too early to start getting your dining plan locked down. 

Keep the tradition of Easter brunch alive at any of these restaurants on our list on Flavor 574

Check ahead for reservations, or decide if you want endless options at a buffet — we can smell the ham, pastries and eggs Benedict already!
