Our restaurant, AS220 Foo(d) helps create the casual but always lively community gathering place found at AS220’s Empire St Complex. The open kitchen, counter service establishment serves a single seasonal menu and up to a half dozen creative specials daily during lunch and dinner hours, Tuesday through Saturday. AS220 Foo(d) works with local New England farms and food artisans to create fresh seasonal menu items and daily specials, in so far as availability and cost allow. Managed by Guy Michaud, AS220 Foo(d) serves up a fresh and constantly changing menu that includes a great selection of vegan and vegetarian dishes. The restaurant also provides six-month positions for youth involved with AS220 Youth and/or the Rhode Island Training School’s (RITS) culinary arts program. Profits from the restaurant go to supporting the organization’s not-for-profit work.
The Bar @ AS220 and AS220 Foo(d) are joined through their shared space at 115 Empire Street and a shared mission – to offer quality, locally-sourced seasonal products at the fairest possible price. Managed by Noah Anacleto, The Bar @ AS220 serves beer, wine and spirits from over two dozen New England breweries and distilleries; offering patrons twelve constantly-rotating beers on tap, house-infused liquors made with fresh, local fruits and vegetables, herbs, spices and teas, and seasonal specialty cocktails. Profits from The Bar protect the open and unjuried booking policy of the AS220 Galleries and the 115 Empire Street Performance Space.
