RailBird Kitchen, the newest restaurant at 804 N. Henry Street next to speakeasy Captain Gregory’s, is now open, Alexandria Living Magazine first reported.

The new restaurant’s focus is on comfort food and cocktails. RailBird Kitchen and Cocktails is replacing vegan restaurant Elizabeth’s Counter, which closed last August, though for many Alexandrians the location will always be remembered with pining nostalgia as the home of Sugar Shack.

The restaurant had a soft launch in December, but its grand opening was this week.k

While the new location will continue the Elizabeth’s Counter tradition of solid vegan options, the main star of the new restaurant, Alexandria Living Magazine reported, will be chicken sandwiches (available in a vegan form) with some Bahn Mi inspiration.
