CHESTERFIELD, Va. — A pair of local restaurateurs is ready for a third course.

Kevin McGrath and Steve Rogge, owners of the Flyin’ Pig Backyard Grill and Asado, plan to open Wood & Iron Gameday in the Shoppes at Bellgrade in Midlothian early next year.

The new restaurant will take over the 6,600-square-foot space at 11400 Huguenot Road previously occupied by Brew American Gastropub, which closed that location in late October.

It will be the third restaurant for McGrath and Rogge in four years. They opened the Flyin’ Pig at 13560 Waterside Place in the Village at Waterside Shopping Center near Brandermill in November 2012.

They came into the city in March 2015 with Asado at 727 W. Broad St. near VCU.

To get Wood & Iron up-and-running, the duo is investing nearly $200,000 of its own capital into the space, McGrath said. Mechanicsville-based Just Like New Remodeling is handling the renovations to the space, which will be able to seat about 140 people with interior and patio seating.
