SOLON - The former Max & Erma’s restaurant will be getting a rustic rejuvenation with the arrival of the Burntwood Tavern, tentatively scheduled to open Memorial Day weekend.
That leaves about 8-10 weeks for the buildout, approved March 19 by City Council. The plan includes a patio and outdoor fireplace, a custom cupola and galvanized metal roof and awning, as well as a rain garden with flowering plants.
Council also signed off on a request to put in an additional entrance and driveway off Solon Road, in addition to the existing access routes off Kruse Drive. Traffic Engineer Kevin Westbrooks recommended right-turn-only entrances and exits, due to traffic backups from the Solon Road-Kruse Drive intersection.
