Back in June we learned that owner of the Vietnamese fusion restaurant Élevé would be closing and opening in its place a new American restaurant called Library on Main, serving “hearty playful small plates”and they are now open. The new name and book-inspired design is in reference to the former Walnut Creek library located at this spot. Check out their soft-opening menu here and cocktail menu here. Of course I’m looking forward to trying the Library burger! The menu contains literary-appropriate titles such as: Prologues (snacks), Chapter One (salads), Chapter Two (small plates), Chapter 3 (large plates) and Happily Ever After (desserts). Check out their Facebook page here.
