Frank and Steins’ owner, Pete Downing, told Bungalower that the space will now be named “Market on Magnolia,” and will feature three independently run kiosks. The kiosks are run by Gnarly Barley, Da Kine Poke, and Anthony’s Thornton Park; which will be operating under the name “Sauced: Wood Fire Pizza.”
Downing was clear in his message that the owners and current staff would be staying, with some additions, through the transition. The changes will be programmatic and aesthetic, with the current layout going away to better serve the new food stations and long communal tables at the center of the space.
The bar will remain and will serve roughly 40 draft beers, with a focus on Florida brews. They will offer growler refills and have grab-and-go liquor and beer package store offerings.
“Craft beer isn’t a niche anymore,
it’s a necessity.” – Pete Downing
Frank and Steins is scheduled to close their doors on Sunday, July 2. The renovation is expected to take one month, with the new Market on Magnolia concept opening in August.
Hours are expected to be late-night from Wednesday to Friday, with the kitchen closing at 1 a.m. on those days, and 11 p.m. on others. More information on the concept will be released later today, including social media accounts.
