Its new tenant is Duos Catering, founded in 2009, which hopes to eventually include a “neighborhood hangout” style restaurant in the space. That’s according to Duos co-owner Benjamin Jury (photo left), who we met when we stopped by to find out who would be moving in.
Jury says the space’s big draw for him and his co-owners is its kitchen; you might recall that it was designed by a respected chef, the late Sean Goff of Café Revo, the first restaurant to operate in the space (2009-2010). According to Jury, the Duos partners are also impressed by the wood bar that dates back to the space’s Revo days. Right now, he says, friends are helping them clean and paint the space in hopes of getting it open for their catering work as soon as inspectors will allow; the restaurant plans are further down the road, and will probably begin with “small plates”-type offerings – they’re still considering their future options. To see what kind of food Duos creates, you can check out their catering menus online (event menus here, corporate menus here).
