8th And Union Kitchen Happy Hour & Specials

News Journal: The former Union City Grille has been reborn as 8th & Union Kitchen. The new Southeast Asian inspired restaurant, in Wilmington’s Little Italy neighborhood, opened in late April.

In November 2014, chef/owner Matthew Curtis announced he was selling the 805 N. Union St. eatery he purchased in 2008. The building had once been the home of Tarabicos restaurant.

Brian Ashby has spent several months completely renovating the space. His family runs the Ashby Hospitality Group, the organization behind the Deer Park Tavern in Newark and Odessa’s Cantwell’s Tavern.

Ashby has refocused the menu on flavors from Thailand and Vietnam with contemporary twists. The menu includes Asian pickles, bao bun pork belly sliders, banh mi sandwiches (sometimes called Vietnamese hoagies), spicy green curry, shrimp pad Thai and pho, or Vietnamese noodle soup.

Union City Grille was long known for its Monday night half-priced burger special – Curtis won the Wilmington Burger Battle, which he helped found, several years in a row — and the special has returned.

The new restaurant also will feature deejay entertainment as well as traditional, house, and Tiki cocktails. The bar has 14 beers on draft.
