According to My Augusta Local, downtown Augusta will soon be home to a globally-inspired gastropub.

State Lunch Craft & Kitchen is the brainchild of Shawn McLaughlin, a man who has spent the majority of his adult life working in the service industry as a bartender, marketer, and salesperson.

Wikipedia defines a "gastropub" as a hybrid pub and restaurant, notable for serving beer, wine and food.

They have not announced an opening date, but you can keep an eye on their Facebook page for updates.
