Seems like the ever-expanding jugofresh empire keeps growing. Today it was announced that the team behind the popular juice bar are opening a pop-up restaurant called r+d kitchen by jugofresh, opening August 1 inside the jugofresh location in South Pointe.
The "plant-based fare" will be created by jugofresh's Executive Chef Darren "Paco" Laszlo will feature a menu filled with, "shared plates, vegan charcuterie boards, superfood sweets, cold-pressed juice mocktails, sake cocktails and a curated organic wine."
The 30-seat restaurant will be open for dinner Thursday through Saturday as well as brunch on Saturday and Sunday for a, "limited summer run." The jugofresh will stay in open during the daytime however Monday through Friday.
Reps tell us this isn't related to the project they have planned for the 2,000-square-foot space they leased earlier this year down the street in Sunset Harbour. More details to come on that shortly.
