Nick Badovinus’ Off-Site Kitchen to Open “In Two to Four Weeks”

Nick Badovinus, the chef/owner of the trio of Neighborhood Services restaurants in Dallas, says his newest venture, Off-Site Kitchen, will open “in two to four weeks.”

The A-frame at Wycliff and Irving Blvd., near downtown Dallas, will initially open for breakfast only, at 7 a.m., then Badovinus will add lunch a couple of weeks later. Dinner will follow “once we work out any kinks.” Badovinus says Off-Site will eventually operate full-tilt from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

“People want to eat what the kitchen staff and the cooks eat, which is really good, simple food,” said Badovinus. “Everything we’ll serve you can hold in your hand, so you can eat and operate a fork lift at the same time. That’s what eating in the kitchen is like–you’re always on the move, standing up.”

This is gonna be killer food,” with a price point of $5 to $7. Badovinus says you can expect to roll in for breakfast sandwiches and burritos, coffee and a newspaper in the morning, grab a to-go sandwich (brisket, roasted turkey and chicken, meatloaf) for lunch, or pop back in after noon for burgers, cobbler, brownies, fried pies and beer.

As Nancy Nichols first reported, Off-Site Kitchen was originally intended to serve as a central commissary for Badovinus’ growing empire of restaurants, but Badovinus says, “we’ve dialed back the commissary part,” though he’ll still use the Off-Site kitchen to cut and portion the meats for all his restaurants.

Off-Site Kitchen is more diner than restaurant, with 10 seats at the counter, a big t0-go section, and picnic tables outside.

What happened to this?

“It’s coming, brother.”
