If you're headed downtown for the Market After Dark this weekend, you'll have the chance to stop by Cedar Rapids' newest restaurant!

I was scrolling through Facebook this morning, and I was surprised to discover that a brand new restaurant is set to open in downtown Cedar Rapids this weekend. It's literally a three minute walk from the radio station, so I'm not sure how I missed it!

ChopHouse Downtown will hold its grand opening celebration this Saturday, September 25th at 411 1st St SE. The building was once home to River City Eatery and is located next door to the former Dublin City Pub. According to the official Facebook page, the restaurant offers "casual dining with burgers and sandwiches, as well as steaks, pork and fish selections." The locally owned and operated business says their mission is to give their customers "a place to celebrate life's special moments by offering the best food, service, and ambiance."

ChopHouse Downtown's menu is posted on their website, and it features items like the Iowa Burger, the Mound of Nachos, the Better Cheddar Grilled Cheese, and the BBQ Burger. The specialty portion of the menu has even more to offer, with a variety of steaks, fried chicken, BBQ ribs, jumbo shrimp, blackened walleye, and mac & cheese. And don't forget the desserts and specialty cocktails! You can check out the full menu HERE.

Today and Friday, ChopHouse Downtown is having a soft opening to allow their staff to get "hands-on training." The official grand opening will take place this Saturday, September 25th from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. You can follow their Facebook page for the latest updates HERE.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
