WACO, TX — Los Angeles restaurateur Jeremy Fall is planning on opening a new restaurant in a historical church in Waco, according to Eater Dallas.

The plan is to call the establishment "Chapter", and the menu will have an Italian influence.

“Think of Arthur Avenue in New York City with modern updates,” Fall said. “Similar to my other restaurants, it’s Americana classics with an elevated twist. We make all our food from scratch.”

The owners of the historic building are local to the area. Lane and Amy Murphy intend on restoring the church and preserving the history and essence of the church.

But that's not all - there will be a hidden bar with a 70s theme in the basement of the church.

Fall says that he’s in the process of beginning construction on his Waco space, and that Chapter will open in late 2019. Downtown Waco said they believe it will be on 2nd and Clay.

He said that he loves small towns and is hoping to capitalize on the newfound trendiness in Waco, inspired by Chip and Joanna Gaines.

Fall has collaborated with celebrities like Shay Mitchell, and other companies, such as American Express and Threadbeast.

His first restaurant, "Nighthawk: Breakfast Bar", served cocktails and elevated breakfast for dinner. He has been seen on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, and he was named in Eater's 100 hottest restaurants in America.

Another one of his restaurants, Tinfoil: Liquor & Grocery, is a modern bodega with a secret speakeasy in the back.
