With the December 2014 shutter of furniture and home store Mixture at 2210 Kettner Boulevard, the Brian Malarkey venture being planned for the 8,000-square-foot space is beginning to take clearer shape.
Thus far, details about the new Little Italy project, one of 2015's most anticipated openings, have been scarce.
Due by summer, Eater has learned that a combo market/grocery/cafe portion of the space will be called Eatery Green. The entire concept is new, and separate from Malarkey's "Fabric of Social Dining" (Herringbone, Searsucker) empire. Eatery Green, and a still unnamed restaurant component, will share the same block as Richard Blais' Juniper & Ivy; we're hearing the kitchen will center around wood fired grills.
Malarkey also runs Green Acre, a casual eatery with an organic farm on-site and a grab-and-go market in the UTC-area. Alongside Hakkasan Ltd., he's prepping for Spring 2015 launch of Searsucker in Las Vegas, where it'll debut in Caesar's Palace.
