Black Sheep a one-of-a-kind restaurant
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.
