The “fresh take on the traditional, family-style Sunday dinner, with a focus on farm-raised and artisan-prepared ingredients” concept is slated for a June opening, according to the prepared statement.

“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 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.”

Revival will serve up meats, fish, and veggies, with seasonal options that change daily in a new twist on the classic southern meat and three that will remind patrons of grandma’s cooking.

The restaurant, at 129 Church Street, will even feel like grandmother’s house, with a “lush garden and a spacious yard,” the release notes.
