A new restaurant owned by Chef Jason Haid—former owner of River City Bistro—along with co-owner and fiancée Christen Roberts, will open at The HUB at Providence in the Chaffee Crossing area of Fort Smith in the spring of 2020. Haid will bring his 20 years’ experience in restaurants and fine dining to REVEL, an upscale-yet-casual dining experience featuring a discerning menu of curated southern-style cuisine influenced by international flavors.
Serving as the anchor-point of The HUB—a mixed-use development with a community-building bent in the Chaffee Crossing area—REVEL represents both a new direction for restaurants and a return to a town-center mentality that offers a place where community members will gather with neighbors and newcomers alike.
REVEL features a trail-facing indoor/outdoor patio roughly equal to the indoor space and in indoor/outdoor bar divided by a garage door, and is designed to be an inviting place for people to gather in all seasons: warm and cozy in the winter, active and vibrant in the summer, and always welcoming for those who want excellent food, drinks, and company—even on a break from a bike ride.
The HUB at Providence is a development project of ERC focused on building community that includes retail spaces, townhouses, luxury lofts, and an exciting new restaurant. The HUB is also the only development connected by an internal trail system to the Fort Chaffee trails.
