We raised over $23,000 at our Dunkin’ for Durham event, which is an amazing feat, but will still only make a dent in the wages lost over these past few months. We look forward to seeing how much higher this community can take the overall donation with our online continuation of the Dunkin' For Durham Silent Auction.
“The two final tenants to open spaces at the food hall are Alimentari at Left Bank — which will sell Italian specialties, fresh pasta by the pound, and will be the only local whole-animal butchery and charcuterie shop downtown — and Mama Crow's, which is a restaurant featuring locally-sourced salads, burgers, house-made cheeses and hand-cut fries."
Transfer Co. Food Hall, an historically inspired culinary destination in downtown Raleigh, will open its doors with expanded hours on Tuesday, May 7, 2019, followed by a month of celebratory activities leading up to a late-summer grand opening. In addition to its current roster of chefs and restaurateurs, Transfer Co. Food Hall will debut its latest tenants with plans to open in full by end of summer of 2019. Tenants include Alimentari by Left Bank, Mama Crow’s, an expanded Burial Beer can shop, a ballroom/event space and a coworking hall.
"Liza attended high school in Raleigh, and we spent the early years of our relationship living and working in Raleigh after I graduated from culinary school, so we are excited and honored to return and serve this city alongside the esteemed group of chefs and brands at Transfer Co. Food Hall."
Chef Clarke Merrell announces the grand opening of his third Dank Burrito location on Friday, April 19th at 10:30am at the new Transfer Co. Food Hall in downtown Raleigh, NC (500 East Davie Street; www.dankburrito.com; @DankburritoNC). His mission is to serve bold, “craveable” flavors with the craftsmanship of fine dining and the convenience of street food.
We were honored to host Thrive NC’s media day and tasting event at Transfer Co. Food Hall. Presented by Blue Cross NC, Thrive NC’s is a two-day festival in Downtown Raleigh celebrating North Carolina’s culinary roots by bringing together top chefs and restaurants with live music.
“At Benchwarmers in Raleigh, NC, they take their bagels seriously. They use fresh-milled Red Turkey wheat and Einkorn. The dough goes through a three-day fermentation process. They bake everything in a 10,000-pound, ripping hot wood-fired oven. And then they stuff their No. 5 bagel sandwich with Lay’s Kettle Cooked potato chips. Because, thankfully, they don’t take themselves too seriously.”
“On the wall, a school of mullet swims toward the Carolina coast, the silhouette of barrier islands and the undulating line of mainland stark against the aqua sea. Where I’m standing would be just beyond the western edge of the map, at the newly-opened Locals Oyster Bar in Raleigh’s Transfer Co. Food Hall, which has slowly been rolling out new vendors. And I’m ready for seafood.”
“Francis and his wife, Juliann, own and operate Captain Cookie and the Milkman, a mobile bakery and dairy bar serving up tasty treats. The couple started out with a food truck in Washington, D.C., in 2012 and have since expanded to become one of the first tenants in Transfer Co. Food Hall in downtown Raleigh.”
“In Raleigh, Benchwarmers Bagels (Benchwarmers Bagels, 500 E. Davis St., Raleigh, NC, 27601 USA) is one of a handful of new and expanding shops vying for that market. And in a bit of serendipity, one of its owners, Sam Kirkpatrick, was a bartender on the opening team at Cúrate, Button's Spanish tapas restaurant in Asheville.
Joe Kwon had a packed house for such a beautiful talk on Symmetry at CreativeMornings Raleigh — a breakfast lecture series for the creative community. Big thanks to Benchwarmers Bagels, Counter Culture Coffee and NC Modernist sponsoring such a wonderful event in our creative space. A great way to kickoff the weekend at Transfer Co. Food Hall!
“Captain Cookie and the Milkman has opened at the Transfer Co. Food Hall in Raleigh! The company started as a mobile bakery food truck in Washington D.C. and now has several trucks and two locations in the nation's capital along with the new Raleigh spot. The North Carolina location is a homecoming of sorts for the founders.”
Big news, foodies—bagels, burritos, beer and more goodies have arrived in one awesome space in Raleigh, N.C.! Transfer Co. Food Hall, a food hall and market housed in a 43,000-square-foot renovated warehouse in downtown Raleigh's Olde East neighborhood (just a few minutes on foot from the North Carolina State Capitol, Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts, CAM Raleigh and more), is now open!
Benchwarmers Bagels is pushing back against the bagel world’s geography bias. For what seems like forever, a myth has been boiled and baked into a kind of accepted truth. If the bagel you’re eating didn’t come from the New York boroughs or Montreal, what’s even the point? It may look like a bagel, taste like a bagel, lodge poppyseeds between your teeth like a bagel, but if hailing from all the elsewheres in-between, it’s treated as something less than the real thing.
Kirk Francis, co-owner of Captain Cookie & the Milkman, a mobile bakery in Washington, echoed that sentiment. Mr. Francis and his wife, Juliann, started in 2012 with one truck; they added a second one a year later and two more the next year. During the first year of operation, business grew fivefold. The cart experienced 20 percent to 30 percent growth every year after that until last year, when sales were mostly flat.
Benchwarmers Bagels & Coffee will open to the public at 7 am Thursday, February 7th, inside the beautiful Transfer Co. Food Hall at 500 East Davie Street. From then on, the shop will be open 7-2 on Thursdays and Fridays, and 8-3 on Saturdays and Sundays. They will soon expand to be open on Tuesdays and Wednesdays as well.
Burial’s taproom will open Saturday in Transfer Co. Food Hall in downtown Raleigh, the brewery announced on social media. The space is called “The Exhibit,” with the brewery seeing it as a small art space, co-founder Jessica Reiser said in an interview. The wall is decorated with blown-up prints of various can art.
This is a unique, heavily curated and very different approach to the craft beer experience. Our Raleigh exhibit space is a boutique gallery for our beer and art. The expression is similar to that of a cafe, where visitors can sample wares and take their favorites to go. We drew inspiration from chefs who have their large restaurants and their “to go” cafes, offering a different take on the customer experience.
“Transfer Co., which occupies a 50,000 square-foot space at 500 E. Davie St., will open its doors for a special soft opening event Thursday, December 20th from 6 to 10 p.m. Che Empanadas, Locals Seafood Market and Oyster Bar and the Transfer Co. bar will be open and serving.”
“Transfer Co. Food Hall announced Monday a half-dozen new vendors and restaurants to join the project at 500 E. Davie St. The food hall, one of four opening in the Triangle over the span of a year, has redeveloped the 50,000-square-feet of the former Stone’s Warehouse and Carolina Coach maintenance shop.”
