Evansville’s popular fine dining establishment, Cavanaugh’s, recently received a nearly $700,000 facelift. Tropicana Evansville, along with a design team from Hafer Associates, revealed the renovated Cavanaugh’s on Dec. 1, and according to Andrew Herbertz, Tropicana’s advertising and public relations manager, everything in the restaurant received a much-anticipated upgrade.
“If you had seen it before, it’s completely different now,” says Herbertz. “To provide the quality atmosphere to match Cavanaugh’s quality food and service, improvements were very necessary.”
From the wall coverings to the carpet, renovations took place on the upscale steak house starting in October and were finished just before the ribbon was cut. Tropicana knocked down walls and lifted up carpet to make way for an expanded, relaxed dining room with several more tables and improved river views. With fresh furnishings, lighting, and framed photos of historic Evansville, the interior is sure to impress anyone looking for a memorable evening, says Herbertz.
Transported from Blush Ultralounge, the baby grand piano takes center stage at the piano bar, where live music is provided nightly. The piano bar also has been expanded so more guests can now dine while listening to music.
Cavanaugh’s has introduced new menu items such as signature steaks and featured dishes. Its wine and scotch list also has grown. Sunday Brunch is new to the restaurant as well, served from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. And, Sunday dinner is coming back — Cavanaugh’s will serve dinner seven days a week, beginning in March. Tropicana Evansville plans to soon announce a new executive chef, too.
