The blue and red accented 2,600 square foot space that houses the Preservery was designed by owners Obe and Whitney Ariss with one things in mind: Community. Obe, whose has a PhD in music, and Whitney, whose background includes working for Whole Foods and Marczyck, are hosting a grand opening for their new business today, April 1 from 6 to 9 p.m.
Located at 3040 Blake, the Preservery is a restaurant, bar, music spot, and small grocer. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be served and the large warehouse-like space will change its vibe throughout the day. Chef Brendan Russell, formerly of Frasca Food and Wine and ChoLon, curated the ingredient-focused menu that guides this change in mood. There is everything on deck from pastries like croissants and eclairs to sandwiches, salads, soups, and finer fare like the braised rabbit in vinegar sauce or pork tenderloin with tonatto.
A small cocktail, beer, and wine list complements the food and live music will also be part of what guests experience here. The pantry section brings everything from necessities like milk and eggs to a variety of artisan chocolates.
Starting on Tuesday, April 4, the Preservery will be open seven days a week from breakfast through dinner.
