In a location that’s had many restaurants pass through over the years (Holy Donuts, CANS Deli, and U.S. Fries), a new spot is excited to be taking over the space soon.
In collaboration with Arte Bella, the new restaurant on the block is called Fullylove’s and it’s planning to open up on Friday, April 30 at 340 N. Fourth Ave.
The menu features handheld bites like The Bialy Burger, an Angus beef patty served with jalapeño cheddar bialy, fontina cheese, truffled arugula, and roasted tomato aioli. There are vegan options as well, like the V-Licious Vegan Burger — topped with vegan Havarti cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, avocado, romaine lettuce, and housemade veganaise served on a brioche bun.
Additionally, owner and executive chef Anthony Fullylove is outsourcing a few items from Cafe Francais, like their brioche buns and Vegan Triple Chocolate Cake.
Fullylove has been working hard over the past 12 years, making his way up the culinary ladder. He started out as a dishwasher and later evolved into the role of a chef at various local restaurants like Prep & Pastry and Commoner & Co.
Along the way, he learned quite a bit in multiple kitchens but opening up his own place is what he’s most exuberant about.
“This is my passion and my goal,” said Fullylove. “To bring high-quality food to Fourth Avenue at an affordable price, too. Everything we do is from scratch and locally sourced.”
So, what’s going on down the hall and located behind Fullylove’s?
You’ll notice that the building’s facade displays Arte Bella’s signage, too, which is who they’ve collaborated with in this venture. Arte Bella is utilizing the area as an art studio, with plans to host live DJ sets and “paint and sip” events, which are cannabis-friendly.
Of course, you can also bring your bites from Fullylove’s back there while you get crafty. Maybe some Deep Fried Peanut Butter SmOREOS will bring out your inner artist.
The hours of operation during the grand opening will be 11 a.m. – 11 p.m.
