Three food concepts are coming to a Raleigh retail center as a group of industry veterans team up.
Vegan restaurant The Fiction Kitchen is leaving its Downtown Raleigh location to open in Gateway Plaza, near the intersection of Capital Boulevard and Crabtree Boulevard, alongside new concepts. Mala Pata, a Latin American restaurant, and Peyote, a takeout-focused bar, will be opening next door.
The two new concepts are primarily owned by Eric Montagne of Locals Seafood and Marshall Davis of Ex-Voto. Angela Salamanca of Centro and Zack Gragg of Locals Seafood are minority owners.
Though three separate concepts, the two restaurants and bar will share some back-of-house spaces as well as a common mezzanine seating area. The partnership is the first of its kind in the area, Davis said.
