Barred Owl Building to an August(ish) Opening

My piece on the latest news from Barred Owl Butcher and Table is up over at Feast Magazine.

Fast forward to May. Smith’s flowing locks are long gone and Barred Owl Butcher and Table’s location is a matter of public record. The large, former home of Inside Columbia magazine will now house Smith and company’s ingredient-driven restaurant, retail butcher operation and charcuterie shop. If that sounds challenging, well, it’s supposed to. But the team behind the project has the chops to back it up.

  1. Great to see you writing for Feast Scott! Looking forward to Barred Owl’s opening. Do you know the date yet?

  2. If you could see the inside you’d know why “late August” is as specific as they can get. It’s a shell right now…exposed studs and wiring, concrete floors, etc. But I will say my initial skepticism of the space has abated somewhat. It’s going to be a truly impressive interior if it comes off as they hope.
