Jayson Munoz, owner of Kanpai on Evansville's East side, is starting Commonwealth Kitchen and Bar on Second Street.

Thursday, crews were out painting and preparing the front of the over 100-year-old building. Munoz tells us the restaurant will feature a full bar and serve sandwiches and other easy-to-eat dishes using fresh ingredients.

"I think it's going to give Henderson a great lunch option because we're going to do a really, really strong lunch as well as bring some people from Evansville over to Henderson," Munoz said.

The owner tells us the new restaurant is set to open January 15th.
