If you didn't know it already, R street is where the cool kids are, and Old Soul is joining the fun, reports Bob Shallit in the Sac Bee.
Tim Jordan, co-owner of Old Soul, said he has an “agreement in principle” to take the retail space in the 25,000-square-foot brick building acquired last year by developer Michael Heller and his partner, Ridge Capital. Jordan said he intends to have the coffee shop and eatery open by the end of the year.
The 40-seat restaurant is tentatively being called Pullman, a reference to the rail tracks that still run up and down R Street but now are purely ornamental. The fare: “the sort of upscale food served in a (railroad) dining car 80 or 90 years ago but with an updated twist,” Jordan said.
The R Street "Pullman" location joins Old Soul's four current Alley, Weatherstone, Oak Park and Airport locations.
