Belly Acres, a new farm to table burger restaurant concept by Ben McLean, is opening in early Dec at 2102 Trimble Place in Overton Square.

The restaurant will be located on the east side of the new Tower Courtyard with a patio overlooking the area. McLean, who has previously worked with Huey’s, Soul Fish and Alchemy, also assisted in the opening of Lettuce Eat in Germantown.

Belly Acres promises to be an energetic, environmentally responsible restaurant. Operators will source ingredients locally and offer a variety of burger options to accommodate all dietary preferences from carnivorous to vegetarian to gluten-free. McLean plans to work with at least three local farms to provide the restaurant’s ingredient supply.

Belly Acres will have a fun kid-friendly design that will be “a mix between Willy Wonka’s farm and the City Museum in St. Louis.” It will serve lunch and dinner 7 days a week.
