Amy and Spike Gjerde, the team behind Woodberry Kitchen, have signed a lease to open a butcher shop-restaurant space at 2600 North Howard Street, the Remington project being developed by Seawall Development.
Spike Gjerde said the Remington location would be an extension of the intensive butchering program at Woodberry Kitchen run by George Marsh, a partner with the Gjerdes in the yet-to-be-named project. "We love what's happening in Remington, and we’re amped to hopefully be part of a growing community," Gjerde said.
Formerly an automobile repair and tire shop, the Remington site will include 5,000 square feet for the restaurant, 2,600 feet of non-profit office space and 6,500 feet for the operations of Single Carrot Theatre, which was announced last December as the first tenant for 2600 North Howard Street.
Last summer, the Gjerdes opened Artifact Coffee in Seawall's Union Mill complex, a Hampden stone mill located nearby their flagship restaurant, Woodberry Kitchen.
There is no date for the new project's opening, according to Gjerde, who said that the project still must pass muster with various neighborhood organizations. "It's a long row to hoe," Gjerde said.
