Under Construction: Woodford F&B (updated)

A new restaurant called Woodford F&B(facebook, twitter, instagram) is now under construction at 660 Forest Ave. Owner Birch Shambaugh is planning an 85-seat restaurant with a full bar,

Woodford F&B will be a neighborhood restaurant and bar serving dependably delicious Food & Beverage. We’re inspired by classic neighborhood eateries where you can count on having a reasonable, simple meal or, when you feel like it, something a bit more special. Our goal is to make Woodford F&B the kind of welcoming, local spot you’ll want to visit regularly.

The draft menu submitted with the Woodford liquor license application includes items like Radicchio Salad, Fisherman’s Stew and Fried Chicken. Shambaugh hopes to open Woodford F&B this Fall.


660 Forest Ave has a claim to local restaurant fame as the location of the original Valle’s Steakhouse.

  1. I’ve often wondered if the old Western murals I have seen photos of (in the old Valle’s menu particularly) were intact in that space.

    Also, for any who may be interested, the restaurant is not displacing the laundromat in the back half of the building.
