Syracuse, N.Y. — Work on Syracuse’s first Tilted Kilt location is still coming along and the restaurant now plans to open in November.
The Celtic-themed sports pub originally planned to open in May, but the date was pushed back several times. The 7,000-square-foot building is under construction near the Hampton Inn visible from Interstate 690 East by the Thompson Road exits.
The Syracuse location is aiming to open the week of Nov. 10 or Nov. 17, said Sam Pascarella, general manager.
The chain got its start about six years ago and already has 96 locations, including one in Watertown.
Tilted Kilt is known for dishes like Irish nachos, Gaelic chicken, steaks, burgers and Irish stew. It also has plenty of TVs for sports watching.
The pubs focus on craft beer as well. The Syracuse location will have 30 beers on tap, including several from local breweries.
The chain employs scantily-clad waitresses, known as Kilt Girls. They wear mini-kilts and plaid bras. The company has plans to open restaurants in Utica and Ithaca as well.
