Former Bottleworks Chef Opening a New Restaurant in Plainfield

Back in February of 2021, it was reported that the owners of Oasis Diner had been approved to renovate and activate the historic Prewitt Theater into an “upscale and unique but classic and casual dining experience.”

Recently former Bottleworks Hotel chef Ricky Hatfield shared plans he would be  chef and partner for Plainfield’s newest restaurant destination in development — The Prewitt.

The Prewitt Theatre opened in 1927 and was later renamed the Village Theatre until it closed in 2005; remaining vacant ever since.

A brief post on Facebook mentioned opening between August and September, depending on construction and supply chain timeline.

Hatfield has had stops at CharBlue, Ellison Brewing & Peterson’s previously.
