Bastrop Main Street restaurants, bars have new look for new year

New year, new taste.

If you thought you’d tried everything to eat on Bastrop’s Main Street, think again. Several restaurants have revamped their menus — and their interiors — ahead of the new year, including Main Street Cafe, a downtown staple for 20 years.

Owner Melissa Kitchens, who took over the former Deli Depot three years ago, has reimagined the restaurant’s menu in advance of offering dinner service and alcohol sales, as well as a new lounge patio next month.

The typical breakfast and lunch fare that featured mostly sandwiches and home-cooked plates now packs a bigger punch. The brunch menu offers items like smoked salmon and herb crepes, bananas foster French toast and sweet cream pancakes.

For lunch, selections like the ahi tuna poke and honey fried chicken picnic basket with jalapeño mashed potatoes and homemade biscuits are standouts. As for what the restaurant will be offering at dinner, expect a veggie risotto and ribeye steaks, as well as table service and beer and wine.

Kitchens also said she is working on overhauling the restaurant’s back porch, tearing down old fencing to allow diners a great view of Bastrop’s Old Iron Bridge — somewhere people can relax on the patio for happy hour or enjoy brunch mimosas.
