The anticipation for Kyle and Katy Foster’s next project Julep has only grown after missing earlier projected debut dates. But a mid-November arrival date from the husband-and-wife culinary team appears on the horizon, and feel confident enough to reveal an early preview of a sample winter menu.
Described as “sophisticated Southern” in approach and design, Julep will fill out the 2,750-square-foot ground-floor space on a previously empty RiNo plot at 3258 Larimer St., adding a mezzanine and patio. Office space and a dental office plan to settle on the two floors above.
Formerly of Colt & Gray, Kyle Foster will act as owner, proprietor and chef, while wife Katy will continue her focus at the Stir Cooking School once the project debuts. The declared Juelp mission will be to “honor the history and traditions of Southern hospitality while featuring local foods and produce, particularly vegetables.” The bar focuses on Southern whiskey and American cocktails.
While the sample menu is not confirmed for opening day, it helps provide a strong hint of the “sophisticated” direction to arrive this fall.
