Culver Wings restaurant debuts

February 17, 2012

Most Culverites have heard (or said) in recent years that the one dining option Culver may be missing, with the disproportionate
number of fine destination restaurants for which its known, is what Culver-raised entrepreneur John Zehner calls "a moderately priced, family friendly place."
