ONALASKA, Wis. (WKBT) - The latest development at Onalaska's Great River Landing is getting ready to open.
Final preparations are underway at David Reay's Modern Diner and Tavern, a new restaurant next to the Dash-Park on Second Avenue and Main Street.
It's part of the effort started by Festival Foods founders Dave and Barb Skogen last year to develop Onalaska's downtown and Black River waterfront.
"Being situated with the Dash Park and across from Great River Landing, I can foresee this being an epicenter and a catalyst for the growth of the Onalaska downtown district for decades to come," said David Reay's owner Matt Boshcka.
The restaurant is named after the Onalaska doctor who actually delivered Dave Skogen when he was born and aims to be a modern spin on a traditional diner.
It's being run by the same owner as La Crosse's Dublin Square and Burger Fusion.
It'll also include pies from AddieCakes and ice cream from The Pearl.
David Reay's officially opens at 11 a.m. on Monday.
