The Galley Group, founded in Pittsburgh two years ago, is bringing its restaurant-incubator concept to Cleveland next year, with space for four aspiring chef-owners. The eatery – it doesn’t have a name yet – will be part of the Quarter development, under construction at the corner of Detroit Avenue and W. 25th Street in Ohio City.
It will occupy the first floor of the historic Forest City Savings and Trust Building, built in 1890s and currently occupied by Massimo da Milano, which will close later this month.
The building is being reconfigured with four small kitchens and communal seating space for about 250. The four-in-one food hall is expected to open in late summer.
The concept works like this:
- Chefs are given their own small kitchens, rent free, for one year. They create their own menu, hire their own staff, and supply small equipment.
- There’s a bar and communal dining area for all four mini-restaurants. Visitors order at the counter and their food is brought to them.
- Chefs share 30 percent of their revenue with the Galley Group, which manages and markets the complex.
