Stir Restaurant & Bar is now in soft opening in Ivanhoe Village.

Stir, which is occupying the space formerly housing Nova Scratch Kitchen and before that, Brian's Diner, will open its doors at 4 p.m. today at 1409 N. Orange Ave.

The new restaurant is the product of Dallas Cowboys lineman and Seminole High School alum Kadeem Edwards and former Park Station investor Blake Levison.

Focusing on lunch, dinner and brunch, Stir will feature classic American fare like shrimp and grits, pork ternderloin, duck confit and short ribs.
