  • Another restaurant and bar for The Paseo

    The once-sleepy Paseo District is arguably the hottest area of town, with yet another bar and restaurant in the works.

    Hot on the heels of a flying start of Gun Izakaya, 84 Hospitality Group is planning a brick and mortar location for its popular Burger Punk food truck.

    Work has already started at 3012 N. Walker, space formerly occupied by The Root and just south of the Mayan Taqueria.

    Proprietor Rachel Cope refers to all her concepts – Empire Slice House, Goro Ramen, Revolucion, Gun – as “social dining” and true to form, Burger Punk will have a large bar and an outdoor patio on the south end of the building.

    Cope says the new spot “will be like Empire and Shake Shack had a baby” when it opens in early December.

    The simple menu will be similar to the food truck (fresh burgers, crinkle fries and shakes) with a few new additions.

    The bar will have a heavy focus on whiskey with a larger beer selection.

    Demolition work has already started at the space.
