Butcher & Bee Requests BAR Approval for New Venture

A new project associated with Butcher & Bee is on this afternoon’s Board of Architectural Review agenda.

David Thompson Architects, the firm responsible for the design of Butcher & Bee, is slated to ask the board to grant conceptual approval for renovation of 652 King St., a 1940s building roughly in front of the popular restaurant. According to the agenda, the renovations will include “new windows, paint and tile.”

It’s impossible to tell from the submitted sketches exactly what’s in store for the venue, and owner Michael Shemtov is staying mum on the subject. But there are a few illustrated hints: Whatever is within the building will be known as The Daily: By Butcher & Bee. In the drawings, baguettes and beer growlers are visible through the frosted windows. So perhaps it’s a provisions shop? Have a look for yourself here.
