Chef Scott Crawford and business partner John Holmes opened Standard Foods in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina in 2015 with a mission to reintroduce the food, farmers and artisanal production methods of the region to the Raleigh community. The operation melds Chef Crawford’s award-winning cuisine with locally sourced products in a 6,000 square-foot space that is part corner grocery store and butcher shop, and part restaurant. The 80-seat restaurant is open for lunch and dinner Tuesday through Saturday but Head Bartender Taylor Homes, head butcher Steve Goff and Chef de Cuisine Bret Edlund have plans to host a series of pop-ups that will keep the dining room hopping well into the wee hours of the night. The pop-ups are scheduled to be held the last Saturday of each month and will run from midnight until 2:00 am with a special one-night-only cocktail menu paired with special late-night fare. Standard Foods is kicking off the first pop-up tonight with guest bartender Garrett Waddell from Stanbury and promises of diner-style cocktails and snacks like Ramos Gin Fizz and Fried Boudin. Our advice? Come late and come hungry.
