Chef Shack opening a brick-and-mortar restaurant
Travis Anderson Carlson and Summers are heading east
Amid recent rumors that they might put down roots in the East Harriet neighborhood of Minneapolis, Carrie Summers and Lisa Carlson of Chef Shack announced they'll actually be going further east ... to Wisconsin.
Summer and Carlson have purchased a property in Bay City, Wisconsin, which used to be a restaurant called River Bay Cafe. The pair will close on the property on August 15 and will begin renovations in preparation for a fall opening.
The space, which seats 40 guests inside and 40 more on the patio, was already outfitted with a wood-burning pizza oven, so Chef Shack will likely be adding pizzas to their repertoire. Dinner will be served on Friday and Saturday evenings, but Carlson and Summer say that Sunday brunch may be added in the future.
