Black Sheep a one-of-a-kind restaurant

Jan. 30, 2014 @ 07:17 AM

HUNTINGTON — Upon tak­ing over the former home of The Java Joint and Calamity Café in 2011, Black Sheep Burrito and Brews quickly established itself as a one-of-a-kind dining estab­lishment in Huntington.

The restaurant known for it’s mix of burritos with exotic ingredients recently established a partnership with the Charles­ton Brewing Company. Black Sheep will be taking over the brew pub’s restaurant space at 702 Quarrier St., in Charleston, and the Charleston Brewing Company is now offering a mix of beers including it’s Liberty Ale, Hurricane Double IPA, and Raj India Pale Ale. Because of it’s larger kitchen area the Charles­ton location will be serving as a test-kitchen for empanadas and some other future editions to the menu .

“The owners of the Charleston Brewing Company approached us about a month ago. The wanted to focus more brewing and wanted someone to take over the restaurant space,” said Jessica Bright who co-owns the restau­rant with Patrick Guthrie and in a partnership with Chef Jeremiah Bowen. “We had been looking into opening a second location for awhile now. It was a good marriage. We’re Black Sheep Burrito and Brews, so it made sense to go into business with a local brewing company.” In the meantime Huntington Black Sheep is currently under­going a remodeling and expan­sion. Having recently acquired the upstairs space next door (formerly home of Scent from Heaven), Black Sheep is currently constructing a second kitchen and a space for private events.

“We’ve worked on the space upstairs on and off for the last year,” Bright said. “We com­pletely gutted the space, and the kitchen is almost in. We also put in a concrete bar. We are going to have a multi-media hookup so people can have meetings and different events like wed­dings. We’re hoping to have the new area open sometime in the spring, possibly by May.

“We are gearing up to roll out a new menu,” she added. “We recently ran two specials on our weekend brunch chicken and waffles, and green onion-butter biscuits with honey nut breaded chicken and house made sau­sage that will be sticking around fulltime by popular demand. We decided to try the chicken and waffles after a trip to San Diego.

They are doing very well. On our current menu we have a seasonal fried roast beet taco and a Korean BBQ Telera sandwich.” Black Sheep Burrito & Brews is located on the corner of 3rd Avenue and Hal Greer Boule­vard. The kitchen is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Wednesday and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Thursday through Saturday. Brunch hours are from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
