Want to get a sneak peek inside of new Cesar Chavez project Sawyer and Co., and snag a piece of Arkie's? The soon-to-open restaurant is holding tours and a yard sale today and tomorrow (June 27 & 28). The space was previously home to longtime Cesar Chavez institution Arkie's Grill; the Sawyer team is selling both Arkies "memorabilia" and kitchen and catering equipment. The sale kicked off at 7:30 a.m. today "onwards," and will start at 7:30 a.m. tomorrow as well.
Sawyer and Co. is a mid-century inspired "Southern Louisiana diner" from partners Stephen Shallcross of Swoop House and designer Mickie Spencer. The restaurant will feature "affordable" diner fare and boozy milkshakes; it's slated to open this summer.
