A Main Street bistro will have a new name and a new chef beginning in August.

Andrew Roper, a chef with 26 years of experience around the world, has bought Wagon Wheel Bistro.

The name will change to Drew’s Kitchen and the decor will be changed.

Monique Paul, owner of Wagon Wheel Bistro, said the menu will be much the same as the existing restaurant menu. The staff will also remain.

“There’s not going to be much change,” Paul said. “Just the decor is going to be changing.”

She said Roper will emphasize local foods. He makes his own sausage and is committed to using locally fresh items as much as possible.

Paul set up the bistro five years ago and thanks the community for supporting the business since that time.

“It’s just been a wonderful five years,” she said. “We’ve had so much laughter here.”
