Two new eateries will soon be added to Downtown’s restaurant mix: an upscale Irish pub planned for 152 Madison Ave. serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, and a new restaurant and bakery at 314 S. Main St. that will offer treats like cupcakes, wine and coffee.

The Brass Door Irish Pub plans to sign a five-year lease with three five-year options for about 5,000 square feet at 152 Madison. It will go before the Center City Development Corp. Wednesday in the hope of winning two incentives – a retail forgivable loan and a façade grant.

Center City staff has recommended a $40,000 retail forgivable loan for the pub and a $30,000 façade grant.

Over in the South Main Historic Arts District, The Red Velvet restaurant plans to sign a five-year lease for about 1,900 square feet at 314 South Main. It will have seating for about 40 people.

Center City staff has recommended a $35,000 retail forgivable loan for that restaurant.
