The last time that Fat City checked in with caterers Wes Gartner and Jill Myers of Moxie Catering, the couple was planning to open their new restaurant, Voltaire, in the former R Bar location at 1617 Genessee on Valentine's Day. "That was the plan," Gartner says, "but we've had delays with licenses and permits."

The restaurant, which will serve dinner only, is now set to open in mid-April, according to Gartner.

Gartner says that when the West Bottoms restaurant and saloon does open, it will offer a happy hour with house-made snacks at 4 p.m. and begin dinner service at 5:30 p.m.

Gartner says he has hired an old friend of his, Jamie Zeller ("We used to play in a band together") to be the bar manager for Voltaire; Zeller was most recently employed at the popular Chicago gastropub Longman & Eagle.
