Bumstead Provisions – a new shopping, dining and bar experience – will move into the former ReThreads and hardware store buildings, 2671-75 S. Kinnickinnic Ave.
Bumstead will include a rustic "deli-meets-bistro" restaurant featuring sandwiches, entrees and small plates, a bar specializing in craft beer and a small-town-type general store with spreads, oils, sauces, chocolates and more.
Owners Devin Eichler and Mike Bodow are from Twelve12 Hospitality, the ownership group of Crafty Cow in Oconomowoc.
"The Bay View neighborhood just has this vibe, it just feels right," says Bodow.
Braatz Building, the creators of Lulu Café and Goodkind in Milwaukee, will build-out the space. Designer Libby Castro of LP/w Design Studios will handle the interiors. LP/w also did the interiors at C. 1880 and The Vanguard.
Bumstead Provisions is expected to open in early September. Corporate executive chef Allen Andrews will run the kitchen.
"Bumstead Provisions is going to focus on artisan sandwiches and small plates, but also as a place you can pick up all of your amazing deli meats, cheeses, spreads and bread for dinner or before Packers games on Sunday," says Andrews.
Bumstead Provisions proposes to be open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. Friday and Saturday.
