Previously known as Vineyard Cafe on the River, the new Arrow Factory has taken over this gorgeous space located along the lovely tree-lined Liangmahe River Canal. The smaller Arrow Factory Taproom still remains tucked inside Stuff’d on Jian Chang Hutong 箭厂胡同 (just around the corner from Wudaoying Hutong).
Part of the same family as the Vineyard and Stuff’d by partners Will Yorke and Thomas Gaestadius, the taproom finally has room to stretch its arms out with this lovely 3-story building.

Garden Brunch at the Georg Every Sunday
The boys at the Georg seem to do things their own way and their approach to Sunday brunch is exactly in line with the playful yet focused take on food that’s been generating such a buzz around what seems to be Beijing’s most talked about new restaurant.
Far from a hotel-style buffet brunch (thank goodness!), the feeling of the Georg’s newly launched Garden Brunch is as fresh in its attitude as it is to the dishes you are served. The title of their menu pretty much sums it up – “beats, rhymes and brunch”.

Napa Expands to a Larger Restaurant Space by Chaoyang Park
Napa Artisan Cooking popped up with a small store-front on Chunxiu Lu (just west of Sanlitun) last year and sparked excitement with their healthy, Californian cuisine and then, equally rapidly, disappeared.
It seems as if the Napa team created their gourmet salads, soups and hot dishes with take-away and delivery in mind as a good base while they took their time to find a large location to open a full-service restaurant, but it looks like that day came sooner than expected because the little deli on Chunxiu Lu was closed after just a few months and they’ve already moved on to bigger and better things!

Soul Bowls Weekday Lunch + Weekend Brunch Serves Food for the Soul
The successful food pop-up that was first launched at The Bookworm before the Hatchery opened at the beginning of 2016, Soul Bowls is back by popular demand and will be available for weekday lunch and weekend brunch at The Hatchery starting TODAY.
Featuring wholesome and delicious dishes, this is exactly the type of food that we should all be eating on a more regular basis – food that is good for the body, mind and soul. And don’t let the name mislead you – while they have plenty of yummy foods appropriately served in bowls, they also have a fantastic line-up of fresh brioche sandwiches and a full Soul Bowls Breakfast (photo above), perfect to get your day/weekend off to a happy start.

“Meat” the Carnivore Club Dream Team
A native Aussie who grew up on a farm in Victoria, Chef Rob Cunningham of FEAST by EAST Hotel knows his meat. And I don’t just mean he knows how to grill a seriously good steak (like most Aussies I know). I mean that his childhood experience has taught him to use every single part of the animal and to show meat lovers that there’s a whole lot more to beef than just a burger or a ribeye steak.
Though Chef Rob started his very own Carnivore Club 2 years ago in March 2014 (with the BJ FOoDiEs entourage), it’s continued to grow over the years to also collaborate with other like-minded, talented chefs around town. For the first Carnivore Club dinner of 2014, Chef Rob will be teaming up with Chef Marino D’Antonio, Executive Chef of Opera Bombana this Thursday, March 24!
A personal project started by Chef Rob to help increase awareness of secondary cuts and offal that restaurants no longer commonly use, Chef Rob has continued to hold the torch of this food baby project high and proud and I can’t wait to see how these two talented chefs are about to re-define your concept of beef in this 5-course Italian-inspired dinner menu.
