GREENSBORO, NC (May 10, 2016) – Natty Greene’s Brewing Co. is planning to open an exciting new restaurant concept at Revolution Mill.
Natty Greene’s Kitchen & Market will be another extension of the brand in addition to Natty Greene’s pub in downtown Greensboro. The restaurant will be done in partnership with Self Help Ventures Fund, which is renovating the 9,000 square foot Carpenter’s Shop building at Revolution Mill to house the new restaurant.
The restaurant will bring together The Butcher, The Baker, and The Beer Maker. It will feature an in-house butchery, marketplace, mezzanine, open kitchen, dining area, high table bar area, and an outdoor patio featuring bar and lounge seating. The patio will be a dramatic outdoor dining area built over the mill’s former reservoir pond just next to North Buffalo Creek.
“Natty Greene’s Kitchen & Market brings together the best of the South. Not only will we continue to handcraft all our beers on tap, we will also bring in fresh meats and produce daily,” said Kayne Fisher, co-founder of Natty Greene’s Brewing Co. “Our base menu will feature shares, make your own meat and cheese boards, salads, and sandwiches with fresh made bread and hand cut meats. At night, we’ll bring out “Today’s Cuts and Sides”. The cuts will be whatever our butcher has brought in that day; at least one beef, pork, chicken, and fish option will always be on the board. The sides will be created from what is available from local farmers that day as well, along with a few steadies ranging from collards to mac n cheese, true Southern staples. All of this will happen in the open kitchen, to again further the customers' experience by allowing them access to see exactly how their food is being prepared.”
The Market concept of Natty Greene’s Kitchen & Market will be another element of the restaurant. The Market will stock the daily cuts, sides, sauces, and even beer and wine for customers to purchase to go.
“This is a spectacular space, within a gorgeous redeveloped part of Greensboro’s history,” said Fisher. The Kitchen & Market concept in a setting like this will be a destination for people from the Triad and beyond.”
The restaurant is part of a $100 million redevelopment taking place at the historic Revolution Mill campus, which includes 250,000sf of Class A office space and creative studios, 142 apartments, event and performance venues, and a planned connection to the downtown Greenway system. The Kitchen and Market will occupy a building formerly used as the textile mill’s Carpenter's Shop, which boasts giant windows, original timber beams, and overlooks Revolution's iconic smokestacks and North Buffalo Creek.
“Revolution Mill and Self-Help are ecstatic to have Natty Greene’s Kitchen and Market locating here,” said Self-Help’s Tucker Bartlett. “Natty’s is a Greensboro institution and their restaurant concept starts an exciting new chapter in the history of both Natty’s and Rev Mill. We had always hoped for a destination restaurant that would anchor that part of the campus, and this concept certainly fits the bill. The Natty’s folks have been great to work with—we see them as partners in the continued success of this project.”
“We’d also like to thank the City of Greensboro for supporting this partnership between Revolution and Natty Greene’s.” The City of Greensboro is partially funding the creation of parking and related infrastructure that is critical to allowing customers convenient access to the new restaurant.
