Newport Beef O'Brady's Will Change, New Name is Temporary
If you are a follower of Beef O'Brady's Newport location on Facebook, you may have received a notification on Thursday that it changed its name.
Now, it's known as Newport Sports Grill.
But that's only temporary.
A new name and brand identity will come in the summer, the location's operators told The River City News via Facebook message.
As of Monday, the restaurant, located at 1723 Monmouth Street in the Newport Shopping Center, will no longer be known as Beef O'Brady's. That's when it will officially be known as Newport Sports Grill.
But, its owners, who operated the Beef O'Brady's, too, say that is just for the moment as it transitions to Ole Hickory Sports Grill this summer.
The independently-owned restaurant will feature a menu similar to Beef O'Brady's but with a smoked meat twist, they said.
The current menu at Newport Sports Grill will feature classic sports grill items and more house-made items.
The announcement follows the recent news that the Newport Shopping Center and Plaza were sold. Beaumont, Tx.-based Albanese Cormier Holdings announced the acquisition of the properties late last month.
