Greco Development’s ElseWarehouse apartment building is scheduled to open on Dec. 1, but diners will have a chance to preview food from its restaurant tenant on Oct. 13 during the block party “Überfest.” Along with music and drinks, the event will feature a food sampling from Bear Cheese Restaurant, the business launching in ElseWarehouse’s 6,500 square foot retail space. Bear Cheese is the new venture from veterans of Robbinsdale’s popular chef-driven restaurant Travail.
A Greco Development representative said more information about Bear Cheese would be revealed soon. The Überfest event runs from 4 – 10 p.m. on Oct. 13 and features music by BloodNstuff, The Honeydogs, Hookers & Blow and DJ Strangelove. Überfest is free and open to the public, but a commemorative Überfest beer stein can be reserved on ElseWarehouse’s Facebook page for $10, which includes three beers.
UPDATE: This post originally stated that Travail’s ownership would open Bear Cheese Restaurant based on an erroneous press release. Travail co-owner Mike Brown informed us that the ownership team is not involved in the new venture. Bear Cheese is a new restaurant by veterans of Travail.
