Two Sevens Eatery & Cantina, the fourth restaurant in Princeton that is part of Jim Nawn’s Fenwick Hospitality Group, opens today.
The new restaurant is located at 277 Witherspoon Street next to the AvalonBay apartment complex. A room will be available soon for private parties on the lower level of the restaurant below the main dining area, and visitors can eat outside on a patio when the weather is warm.
Nawn owns Agricola, the Cargot Brasserie, and the Dinky Bar & Kitchen. Two Sevens has a very different feel from his other eateries. The restaurant is an open space with large windows and a casual, industrial feel. It has 100 seats, and features food from Central and South America. Patrick Lacey is the chef. The offerings, made for sharing, include octopus tostadas, papusas, tacos, guacamole, short ribs, salads, ceviche, pork belly, grilled chicken, wings, salsas made with peppers from Fenwick’s Great Road Farm, and more. In addition to Jarritos, house-made horchatas, and fruit drinks, Two Sevens’ bar serves Latin spirits, wine, beer, and cocktails.
Prices for appetizers and tacos range from $5 to $10, salads are $9 to $12, small plates are $10 to $14, items from the grill for two or three people to share are $23 to $26, sides are $6, brunch is $12 to $24, and non-alcoholic drinks are $3 to $9.
Two Sevens serves food from the main menu every day from 11:30 a.m. until 10 p.m. The bar is open Sunday through Wednesday until 11 p.m. and Thursday through Saturday until midnight. A late-night menu is offered Thursday through Saturday from 10 p.m. until midnight.
