The space will house a BBQ stall, Carlton Provisions, founded by Jordan Swim of Vestals Catering and the Founder of Chili’s Larry Lavine. These gentlemen know how to prepare a mean BBQ plate. Their labor of love yields tasty creations like oak-fired brisket, five-hour ribs and house-prepared sausage that are oh so good.
