GARY -

Two northwest Indiana restaurateurs will next month to open a year-round restaurant in the U.S. Steel Yard in Gary. The agreement between the Gary SouthShore RailCats and R&R Gary LLC owners Dwayne Rancifer and Detrick Ross involves the five-year lease of a 7,000 square-foot space in right field of the stadium. R&R Sports Bar & Grill will be the second restaurant for Rancifer and Ross, which also own R&R Caribbean Jerk Chicken in East Chicago.

The organization says the project has been in the works since last summer. General Manager Brian Lyter says "I can't wait for the renovations to be completed and for the doors to open! This is a big day for RailCats Baseball, its fans, the City of Gary, and food lovers alike!"

Rancifer and Ross received the 2018 City of East Chicago Business Economic Award and the 2018 Lake Shore Chamber of Commerce Development Award. The restaurant, which will serve American-style cuisine with some favorites from its Caribbean-themed counterpart, is expected to open mid-May. Rancifer says "the interior walls of the restaurant will showcase and pay homage to the rich sports history throughout Northwest Indiana and it will serve as a family-friendly restaurant and the place to be to watch games."

The RailCats will open their 17th season May 18.
