We knew this day would come, that Workshop (1503 King St.) would swap tenants, but we didn't expect it so soon. Two months after opening, Workshop has announced that Butcher & Bee pastry chef Cynthia Wong and husband John David Harmon's JD Loves Cheese stall will close in late June. Beech Test Kitchen, an arm of King Street's Beech restaurant, will take its place.
According to a press release, Beech's goal is to test out some new items including açaí bowls, poke bowls, smoothies, and cold-pressed juices and operate at Workshop from June 26th and through mid-August.
Things are also moving around in other Workshop stalls. Pink Bellies and Juan Luis are swapping, and on Sun. June 18, Pigeonhole Pop-Up will serve a Jewish Deli-style menu for brunch from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m in Juan Luis' stall.
Pigeonhole is the work of Chef de Cuisines Philip Powers (Lewis Barbecue) and Ray England (Juan Luis) who plan to serve everything from pastrami sandwiches to house-made bagels with lox.
