Casey's Craft Bar Kitchen comes west to Lutz

LUTZ — After opening its first location in Jupiter last November, Casey's Craft Bar Kitchen has expanded to the Tampa Bay area.

Over the summer, a second location opened in Lutz, moving into the space formerly occupied by the Vine.

Casey's Craft Bar Kitchen is open for dinner and Sunday brunch, offering a wide range of menu items.

"We consider our menu kind of new world, eclectic menu," said Mike Hughes, general manager. "We have a little bit from different regions of the world that we like to think that people can find their own niche on our menu."

Dinner menu items include Southern-style chicken and waffles, Asian hot pots, noodles and dumplings, steaks, burgers and fish tacos. There are a variety of appetizers, small plates and shareables, which include charred octopus, tuna or beef tartare, lobster roll and the charcuterie plate.

"People are excited that we're serving the food that we're serving," Hughes said.

Casey's Craft Bar Kitchen offers a variety of handmade cocktails and specialty drinks.

"It's handcrafted ingredients from the kitchen to the bar," Hughes said. "We use fresh fruit, we create our own syrups, we infuse our own agaves for the bar to enhance the flavors of the spirits."

Casey's Craft Bar Kitchen is located at 17667 N Dale Mabry Highway. It is open for dinner 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 5 p.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday, and is open for brunch 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. The restaurant is closed on Mondays.
