The buzz for The Garage food hall in the Bottleworks District is as electric as ever—and it probably has something to do with three of our latest tenants. La Chinita Poblana, The Tartine Station, and Brick & Mortar Barber Shop will join an already exceptional assembly and will have you asking yourself, “Is it 2020 yet?”
LA CHINITA POBLANA
How do you make Mexican food taste even better? Fuse it with Asian cuisine of course—or at least, that’s what George Munoz, owner of Festiva and founder and proprietor of La Chinita Poblana, plans to do.
“The Asian and Mexican flavor profiles actually mix very well together,” Munoz said. “And The Garage provides the perfect opportunity to prove it. Since I closed original location, I’ve been anxious to bring La Chinita Poblana back.”
All your favorite tacos are set to return, including the fan favorite yellow curry blackened tilapia. And best of all, La Chinita Poblana will now serve alcohol—slushy Margaritas and Mai Tais anyone?
You can follow La Chinita Poblana on Facebook, Twitter, and their website.
THE TARTINE STATION
Hankering for another tasty food mash-up? The Tartine Station will have you covered. Palestinian and Filipino influences combine in the form of open-face sandwiches made from slow-cured meats and homemade-fresh Arabic bread.
“Believe it or not, I initially wanted to do empanadas but leaned in a different direction to maximize efficiency,” said Alex Khory, owner of The Tartine Station. “I’ve been working on the menu for about five to six months—I’m excited to open a doorway for Hoosiers to experience new bits of food and culture.”
The Tartine Station plans to be open breakfast, lunch, and dinner, serving its signature tartines, kanafeh (its signature dessert), wine, beer, and hot and cold veggie salads.
BRICK & MORTAR BARBER SHOP
Known for its relaxed vibes and antique décor, Brick & Mortar Barber Shop is a tried and true, old-school barbershop, offering classic haircuts, handmade products, and genuine customer service. At first, though, Brick & Mortar’s owner, Brandon Burdine, wasn’t sold on the new location.
“I’m not a fan of the super cramped and busy places you see locally—but once I saw the space, I was sold. I love the history of the building and I actually grew up not far from there,” Burdine said. “And our style melds perfectly with the surrounding aesthetic of The Garage and Bottleworks as a whole.”
The new shop will be similar to the original location on Delaware Street, serving both men and women with short-style haircuts , with an added retail component. But this location brings an added twist, as it will also serve as an antique store–essentially everything on the walls will be for sale. Passersby can look forward to scouring through items curated from their favorite antique shops around the city.
