Farmtruk will take over food service at Brick River Cider


Farmtruk fare will now be available in a brick-and-mortar spot. Chef-owner Samantha Mitchell will take over food service at Brick River Cider Co. at 2000 Washington Ave., starting Tuesday, April 2.


“We’re super excited,” Mitchell said. “The kitchen is huge and awesome.”


In addition to a complete menu change, which will include Farmtruk favorites along with new items like fried cheese curds, Mitchell said the restaurant will change from table to counter service. Customers will order at the bar and have their food delivered to their table by food runners. The Brick River kitchen will also serve as the commissary for the Farmtruk food truck, which will continue with its regular schedule.


Mitchell, who helped design the layout of the kitchen when Brick River was under construction, said the project will help spread awareness of her brand and give fans more opportunities to enjoy Farmtruk’s food year-round.


Mitchell said the restaurant hours will remain the same: Tuesday through Thursday from 4 to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.


This project will keep Mitchell busy as work continues on City Foundry where she will open CropCircle by Farmtruk, a food stall inside the new Midtown development next year.
