Drake Commissary is an eat-in restaurant, a go-to for grab-and-go, a prepared fare destination, and a culinary workshop in the evolving Junction Triangle area. It’s 8,000 sq. ft. of innovation and experimentation as chefs, bakers, guests + makers participate in an animated exchange around the creation, presentation + consumption of food, in an art-filled environment.
The Commissary fuses The Drake’s food production kitchen, preparing high quality, healthful and made-from-scratch foods for all Drake properties, with an eatery, bakery, bar and larder. It invites the public to partake in the culinary workshop and enjoy a food emporium, while also establishing a casual, social hub for community, art and culture. Relax in one of the warm, eclectic dining and living room areas – options include table or counter service – or pick up ready-to-eat and packaged meals to take home or to the office.
DeRAIL is a site-responsive curatorial project to animate spaces along urban infrastructure corridors; to foster, support, interpret, celebrate and expand public understanding around placemaking, landscape and urbanism, and to provide an alternative platform for dialogue and collaboration across disciplinary, geographical, and ideological boundaries at the intersection of contemporary art and architecture.
