Larks Set to Expand to Medford

12-18 rob webMEDFORD, Ore. — Just a few months after closing on a deal to take over the Red Lion Hotel in Medford, the Inn at the Commons is set to open its new restaurant Friday.

Larks is expanding to its second location after success with the first at the Ashland Springs Hotel.  The owners see big business potential and hope to help play a role in Medford’s urban renewal.

While the two Larks locations will have similar food and atmosphere, the restaurant owner believes the two complement each other instead of compete.

“The winter will be a popular time for people to frequent the restaurant here and then in summer, maybe it’s a little lighter. It’s just the opposite in Ashland,” said Larks owner Becky Neuman.

Larks will take their first guest at their new location Friday evening after the restaurant was completely renovated over the past few months.
