We came up with the name “3” for a number of reasons. This was the 3rd restaurant in our family but most importantly because we provide the 3 essential ingredients for a great night out? Good Food, Good Drink, and Good Times.
Our chef, Brian Robinson, cooks from his heart. He prepares comfortable food, done right. Simple with lots of flavor, the core of his menu is influenced by Brian’s grandfather, John “Dickey” Robinson, who went to culinary school in New Orleans, and introduced him the to the joy of Soulful Southern cooking. Early on, the most valuable lesson Brian learned was to “use the freshest ingredients that you can find.” Whether its his fish being flown in daily from Hawaii or working with local purveyors, Brian holds true to that lesson.
We developed this restaurant around the 1909 Brunswick-Balke-Collender bar that you see when you first enter the building. It is truly an American masterpiece. The authentic piece was purchased in the small town of Russell, Kansas by owner, Greg Cahill. We offer 70 different beers and over 25 wines by the glass from around the World.
Our family has been in the restaurant business since 1970. Greg owned Whitlow’s downtown on 11th & E Street for almost twenty years. We opened Whitlow’s on Wilson around the corner on Fillmore Street and Wilson Boulevard in 1995, Mama Quan’s Tiki Hut for the Summer of 2006, while planning this project, and “3” in 2007. We are in this business because we love it, plain and simple. Our hope is that our passion is felt by our guests. Dining out is supposed to be fun, so relax and enjoy yourselves!
