First Look: Sweet Carrot
After months of renovations, the old Rife’s Market at 1417 West Fifth Avenue has been reborn as Sweet Carrot, a new fresh-focused restaurant from the creators of the Sweet Carrot food truck. The business is the latest venture from Angela Petro, who is also the owner of the Two Caterers catering company and the High Line Car House event venue in the Brewery District.
The new Sweet Carrot is 3,500 square feet and features a menu focused on slow cooked meats, corn cakes, salads, sandwiches, mac and cheese and a range of desserts that includes carrot cake and texas sheet cake. The restaurant also features a bar and a selection of grab-and-go carry out grocery items, including beer and wine.
The store officially opened for business at 11am this morning, and will be open Monday through Thursday from 11am to 9pm, Friday and Saturday from 11am to 10pm and Sunday from 11am to 2pm.
Petro’s next project is a second Sweet Carrot restaurant, which will be located at 752 High Street in Old Worthington. She’s aiming to have it open by early summer 2016.
