The Butcher Block, operating out of the former Fugaise space at 308 E. Hennepin Ave., starts selling box lunches this coming Monday. The restaurant is slated to open in earnest on June 16. Two interesting things:
Their hours are going to be late — 5pm-2am Monday through Thursday, and 5pm-4am Friday through Sunday.
And they have 29 flavors of wings, including house, sweet or spicy BBQ, Frank’s RedHot buffalo, honey mustard, spicy mustard, volcano, maple brown sugar, lemon herb, bourbon, country-fried, teriyaki, szechuan hoisin / plum, hoisin BBQ, Thai peanut, Sambal chili, sesame, cacciatore, marsala, strawberry balsamic, caramelized onion balsamic, salsa verde, blackberry red wine, green coconut curry, mango curry yogurt, jerk, coriander cumin lime, harissa Hungarian paprika, cranberry chili, and “kitchen sink.”
If you count sweet and spicy BBQ as two different flavors, that’s actually 30. And sign me up for an order of maple brown sugar and an order of mango curry yogurt. Crazy!
