PEORIA, Ill. — A new multicultural restaurant is coming to downtown Peoria, while replacing a popular underground pub.

In March of 2018, locals said goodbye to Richard’s Pub and Grill, popularly known as “Richard’s on Main” located at 1313 311 Main Street.

More than a year later, there are already plans for a new restaurant to open in its place. People walking by the old pub can see signs of Jai’s Multicultural Cuisine covering the Richard’s logo.

The sign mentions the new establishment will offer buffets, breakfast, lunch and dinner options.

Currently, there’s no word on when Jai’s will officially be open to the public.

This story will be updated when more information is available.
