Decatur’s Harbour House Pub restaurant closed in December, but the space won’t stay empty for long.

A celebrity chef plans to bring a meat-and-three concept to the space.

Kevin Gillespie, most famous for the Gunshow restaurant, plans to open Revival in early June, according to a press release. The press release said Gillespie is “taking aim at a beloved Southern institution with his newest project.”

“I have fallen back in love with the traditional dishes I grew up eating, and those that represent the beautiful culinary traditions of the Deep South,” Gillespie said in the press release. “Inspired by the cooking of my grandmothers and the history of our region, I want to breathe new life into that classic family-style restaurant, or ‘meat and three.’ We hope to showcase the dishes with a passion and precision that is largely unavailable currently.”

The menu will include be “a blend of meats, fish, and fresh vegetables, with seasonal options that change daily.”

The release says lunch will be served a la carte. Supper “will more closely resemble a classic Southern family-style spread served in your grandmother’s home. Revival will be like going to your grandma’s on Sunday—except every day,” Gillespie said.

The former pub is located at 129 Church Street in Decatur.

The setting even promises to echo a visit to your grandmother’s house, with a lush garden in the front and a spacious yard in the rear. Revival will be located at 129 Church Street in Decatur and is scheduled to open in early June.
