Chef Jason Febres, who just opened his second Taste & See at 255 N. Washington in Old Town, has just made a deal to open Taste & See 3.

But not just anyone can go.

The new restaurant will be at McConnell Air Force Base. Febres said base officials approached him about the idea of opening there because people from the base had become a big fans of his original Taste & See, which is nearby at 3825 E. Harry.

The McConnell Taste & See should open on Feb. 3 in the Dole Center on the base, said Stefan Bocchino, a McConnell spokesman.  It will start off serving just breakfast and lunch.

The restaurant will be open only to those authorized to be on the base, Bocchino said.

Febres said he wasn’t looking to expand yet but that when McConnell officials approached him, he saw it as an opportunity he didn’t want to pass up.
