Chefs Donnie Ferneau and Kelli Marks are partnering to open Cathead's Diner, a Southern comfort food eatery, in the so-called East Village (east of Interstate 30, aka Hanger Hill) in early 2018, their PR folks have announced. 

From the release:

The 4,075-square-foot restaurant, located at 515 Shall Ave., will seat 90 guests indoors and 30 on the patio. A chef’s table and private party room will accommodate about 100 guests, making it an ideal space for business gatherings, birthday parties and other events. Cathead’s is part of the Paint Factory, a mixed-use development overseen by Cromwell Architects Engineers that will be home to Cromwell’s new headquarters as well as retail space and 12 Star Flats loft apartments.

Ferneau, who has been associated with numerous restaurants, including Ferneau's and Ferneau's Good Food, will be executive chef, and Marks the pastry chef. Marks is the owner of Sweet Love, a catering company that offers wedding cakes. The restaurant will serve breakfast, brunch, lunch, and pastry and dessert menus.

Cathead's is hiring: 20 to 25 jobs, from bussers to sous chefs, will be available. To apply, send a resume to
