The new breakfast, lunch and brunch restaurant called “redBERRY” is now open in the former Sherwood Shopping Centre in north Troy, a spokeswoman for the eatery said this morning.

The new restaurant’s hours, at least through July 19, are 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday. Plans call for adding Tuesday hours soon.

The restaurant had held a “family-and-friends” soft opening in June, the spokeswoman said.

RedBERRY serves “classic breakfast, lunch and brunch fare with some creative surprises,” the spokeswoman said. Signature menu items include Parfait, the “redBERRY Skillet,” French Toast Bread Pudding, a signature salad and a BLT.

The redBERRY concept was developed by local entrepreneur Mykie Thompson and investors who have been re-invigorating Sherwood Shopping Centre, now called simply “Sherwood.” Thompson’s parents, Michael and Telisa Delligatta, have overseen the Michael Anthony’s at the Inn restaurant at the Inn at Versailles in Darke County.

“Mykie was looking for an opportunity to manage her own restaurant, and the investors were looking for something new and exciting for Sherwood,” a spokesperson for redBERRY said in a release in February, when plans for the restaurant were unveiled. “The team recognized quickly that one underdeveloped niche in Troy was the breakfast restaurant. No one wanted a chain restaurant or a place that served the kind of meal you could just as easily make at home; instead, they imagined something that was truly unique for the community.”

The restaurant opened with 25 employees.
