Grand Opening of Franklin’s Café & Wine Bar

Franklin’s Café & Wine Bar will hold its grand opening on December 12th and 13th. The newest restaurant in downtown Harrisonburg will offer a variety of salads, sandwiches, pizza and desserts. Seating options include outdoor, café-style indoor seating, in addition to a second-floor lounge. The restaurant is equipped for order-in, carry-out, delivery and catering for private events. Wines by the glass as well as domestic and imported bottles of beer will also be available for customers dinning in.

Valley transplant, Howard Weiner, moved his family up from Florida to Harrisonburg become a part of the downtown revitalization movement. Within months of arriving in Harrisonburg, Howard has completely renovated a low-profile, two-story corner building, into an eye-catching corner café and wine bar. The business concept doesn’t stop at great food; Howard wants to make sure that the restaurant is a part of the community. “We’re trying to give people a break by offering downtown delivery free” and, in addition to food on the go, he also hopes the community will take advantage of his 1000 square foot lounge for private functions.

Grand opening menus are available now and the restaurant’s website will be up and running within the week. Contact details listed below.
