The chefs say they will be be ready to go in mid-May, but now want to hold off because they will be taking a breather Memorial Day weekend.
This location at Front and Morris Streets - which last was 1st Ward sandwiches and previously Langostini - will be a touch smaller than Helm, on Fifth Street just above Thompson. That location, which opened in March 2015, is a Craig LaBan three-beller.
At South Helm, they'll offer a similar style - local ingredients cooked with clever, modern approaches - but the portioning will be on smaller plates.
Initial hours will be Tuesday to Saturday for dinner only.
