Livery Restaurant Transitions to Award-Winning BRU Burger Bar in Eddy Commons

South Bend, Indiana June 02, 2020 – Cunningham Restaurant Group is set to transition its Eddy Street Commons location from Livery Restaurant to its award-winning BRU Burger Bar concept. This location’s reopening, slated for August, will add a twelfth BRU location to CRG’s stable of restaurants. BRU promises to provide guests with a unique dining experience that compliments the South Bend Eddy Commons area near Notre Dame’s campus.

BRU features seating for over 150 guests with comfortable, contemporary décor in its large space. The family-friendly, high-energy restaurant serves lunch and dinner, seven days a week, in an environment everyone can enjoy. During the warmer months, guests can enjoy outdoor dining space along the main Eddy Street Commons thoroughfare.

BRU’s menu features an array of signature burgers, classic sandwiches, appetizers, beer-battered onion rings, and hand-cut French fries served with housemade ketchup. BRU also offers a number of vegetarian options.  An extensive drink menu offers guests everything from hand-dipped milkshakes to handcrafted cocktails.  A plentiful selection of locally brewed beer is on tap as well as wine and bourbon. In addition to supporting local breweries, BRU supports many local farms as well.

The original BRU Burger Bar, on Mass Ave in downtown Indianapolis, has received numerous accolades including “Top 25 Indianapolis Restaurants” (Indianapolis Monthly), “Best Burger” (Indy A-list contest), and “Best Burger” (NUVO Newsweekly Best of Indy issue). Esquire magazine named BRU’s decadent and delicious honey chipotle BBQ burger Indiana’s most outrageous burger.

“We are excited to bring BRU Burger Bar to the South Bend community.  We look forward to continuing to delight our guests with the award-winning menu that many have come to love,” said Mike Cunningham, President and CEO of Cunningham Restaurant Group.

In addition to the BRU Burger Bar concept, Indianapolis-based Cunningham Restaurant Group owns and operates 34 locations in Indiana, Ohio, and Kentucky, including Mesh, Stone Creek Dining Company, Boulder Creek Dining Company, Charbonos, Union 50, Vida, Livery, Nesso, Provision, Rize, Tavern at the Point, CRG Event Center & CRG Grow Greenhouse.
