Legit Provisions is bringing a style of Kansas Metropolis to downtown St. Helena.
Scheduled to open the primary week of November, Legit Provisions will supply Kansas Metropolis-style barbecue, with a self-serve beer and wine station, within the former Cook dinner Tavern area at 1304 Most important St.
It is going to operate as a grab-and-go market with carry-out beer and wine and ready meal kits. Prospects might also order for pickup through an internet kiosk.
“We wish it to be a spot for locals to hang around, eat some barbecue and have a drink,” stated proprietor/operator Kiersten Firquain. “And if you’d like one thing to take residence and put together at residence, that choice’s obtainable as effectively.”
Legit Provisions can also be teaming up with wineries to supply charcuterie and snack kits for wine tastings.
Firquain drew on the same idea for her Blissful Meals Co. in Kansas Metropolis, which primarily supplied meal kits. It closed as a result of COVID-19 pandemic.
A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone, Firquain visited St. Helena in January on the lookout for a spot to launch her subsequent enterprise. She noticed the Cook dinner Tavern area had been vacant since October 2019, and she or he thought St. Helena might use some good barbecue.
Opening a restaurant throughout a pandemic presents apparent challenges, however Firquain is optimistic.
