Have a look at this pretty little number. Industriel is, well, industrial farmhouse fab. Construction has been ongoing at 6th and Hope for the past 15 months, but partners Armen Hakobayan (Green Street Tavern) and Joseph Antonishek are finally prepared to share their urban farm cuisine meets country French eatery, mason jars and all. Industriel held its first soft opening party last night, and another is planned for this evening with passed apps and complimentary wine and cocktails. The restaurant officially opens tomorrow at 5PM for dinner. Lunch to follow on Monday. Can you believe that a Carl's Jr. once served here?
Flo Design Studio is responsible for the two floor restaurant's playful rustic look. Reclaimed wood, exposed ceilings, rough and unfinished surfaces, metal embellishments and a gray/earthy brown palate give the space that Eveleigh/Gjelina natural lived in feel. Not surprisingly, the menu focuses heavily on seasonal produce. There's a flurry of market vegetable plates alongside smoked octopus and crispy pig ears, larger plates span from red snapper (millet soufflé, sea beans, black mussel fennel jus) to duck (wheat berry wild rice cake, pecans, currants, baby roots, hibiscus jus) to a 16-ounce organic rib eye (Kennebec ‘poutine,” faux gras gravy, Roquefort and kale). Preview the menu, but do note that the listed breakfast launch date is not accurate. Breakfast is set to roll out toward the end of June. Until then, lunch is served Monday through Friday from 11AM-4PM and dinner is offered nightly from 4 to 11PM.
Of course the full bar follows the restaurant's farm-centric mantra. Drinks share a market focus, but a slew of classic cocktails grace the menu as well.
