Hutch & Harris, located at 424 W. Fourth Street, Winston-Salem, is planning to expand into the former Wolfies Gourment Frozen Custard space next door. When construction begins in the fall, owners plan a lounge-style area including an oyster bar, appetizers and cocktails. Also included is the expansion of their private-party dining space and existing bar.

The lounge-style area will add 40 seats to the around 90 seats inside the restaurant’s existing 2,500-square-foot footprint.

Construction is expected to be underway by fall. !
