Kraus-Anderson completes remodel of Lyric Kitchen & Bar in downtown Duluth
Set to open to the public October 30
DULUTH, Minn. (October 2017) – The Duluth office of Kraus-Anderson Construction Company (KA), one of the Midwest’s oldest and largest commercial general contractors and construction managers, has completed a four-month remodel of Lyric Kitchen • Bar, formerly Porter’s, located downtown at 205 West Superior Street in the Holiday Center.
Owned by Lion Hotel Group, Porter’s restaurant closed last May and will reopen on Oct. 30th as Lyric Kitchen • Bar, named after Duluth’s historic Lyric block.
Lyric features a full custom bar and broad range of menu items, including traditional and locally sourced products.
Designed by Smart Associates, the new 4,188-square-foot project updated the entry, bar, lounge, bathrooms and dining room to create a more open concept.
Customers will be greeted at a new aluminum storefront entrance off Superior Street, and a new heated vestibule and custom glass-filled wood doors at the Holiday Center entrance.
The interior features new custom-made booth seating, and clear-sealed concrete floors and columns in the main dining area to create a warm welcoming environment with character. Carpet and custom barn doors were added to two private dining rooms for a more intimate dining experience. The bathrooms were fully remodeled with custom tile floors, wainscot and custom designed wallcoverings. Custom wood panels, light fixtures, wall coverings and multiple flat screen TVs were added throughout the space.
