The new restaurant, called Pub 28 for short, will take over the space formerly occupied by Factory Bar & Grill at 2030 Bolton Rd.

Leading the project is Tim Lannon, a partner at Big Easy Grille and Westside Pizzeria. Pub 28 brands itself as a “neighborhood pub & eatery,” and the restaurant’s name itself pays homage to the surrounding location.

Pub 28 refers to Fire Station 28, known as the “Pride of Riverside,” which is located about half a mile away on Hollywood Rd. The station has served the Riverside neighborhood and surrounding community since the 1950s.

The owners of Pub 28 have not shared a target opening date.
