Our feature in Food and Wine Magazine is on newsstands today! We were so happy to host photographer Ryan Liebe and recreate the Lantern Dinners, originally held in October 2013 at Pretend Store with Workstead. Chef Josh Walker from XBB made some amazing food and we hung out late into the night.

In the photos with Josh and Helen are Heather and Josh Keeler of Two Boroughs Larder, Michael Moran, Blake Suarez and Olivia Rae James. Harper Poe of Proud Mary was kind enough to let us borrow some of her beautiful textiles, Larder brought in some cutting boards and Michael Moran lent some of his furniture for the shoot.

Pretend Store has now come to an end and, as of today, we’re happy to announce that we’re looking for a full-time tenant to occupy the building. If it were up to us, we’d have a coffee shop up front and retail in the back, or a simple restaurant concept. We even talked about turning one room into an indoor pool. If you are interested in the space please get in touch!
