The owner of Woodberry Kitchen, Spike Gjerde, will open next month a “farmhouse diner” and canning operation at Belvedere Square in the space that used to house the restaurant Crush, Bmore Media reports.

According to Bmore Media, “a serpentine-shaped counter that seats 22 will be one of the hallmarks” in the 5,000 square foot space, which will also be used to can, freeze and pickle vegetables.

“It’s a diner, but with a heavy dose of Woodberry [Kitchen’s] rusticity,” Gjerde says.

The as-yet un-named restaurant will serve dinner Monday through Friday and three meals a day on Saturday and Sunday.

  1. So exciting! The old Hess Shoe Store is an important anchor to the Belvedere Square “complex,” and it was a disappointment when “Crush” failed. Having such a successful and passionate restaurant entrepreneur as Spike put roots down speaks volumes about the future of this important city space. Kudos to the Gjerdes, and looking forward to dining at their new endeavor, whatever its new moniker may be!!
