It's the first week of spring and downtown Huntington is seeing a lot of new business bloom.
In two months, Drew Hetzer will open "Backyard Pizza & Raw Bar" at the original Chili Willi's location along 4th Ave. Hetzer says, "It's a dream come true, my mom used to work at Chili Willi's and I spent a lot of time there as a kid. Now, I hope my new business will do as well."
Hetzer says his eatery will be a combination of Wood Fired Pizza & Shell Fish. His competition is a couple blocks away. Jason Wickline opened "Chubby Chief's Pizza" last week. Wickline says, "We just keep it simple and try to fix what college kids like to eat." Chubby Chief's pizzas are all made from scratch, even the dough.
A creative twist in the Huntington's Downtown Restaurant District is the expansion of Third & Ninth Deli. Jason Oesterreicher, the former chef at Frederick 21 has partnered up with the Deli. By day, it will be a deli, but at night it becomes a Bistro.
Cameras will be placed above the cooking area, so patrons can watch their meals being prepared.
New York Bagel is also making some changes. The new owners plan to stay open later, especially on the weekends and cater to the M.U. students.
