Chef Nathan Flynt To Open 2 Sons Kitchen & Market

Wednesday, January 6, 2016

Chef Nathan Flynt will open 2 Sons Kitchen & Market, at 1120 Houston St. (previously the Sturm Haus) in the Fleetwood Building, centrally located close to Warehouse Row.

The name of the new restaurant is a nod to Mr. Flynt’s two sons. 2 Sons Kitchen & Market will specialize in locally sourced ingredients, with menu items made fresh-to-order, from scratch.

Two Sons will be open for breakfast and lunch, offering dine-in, to-go and home-meal replacement offerings. The restaurant will also host themed dinners, as well as be available for private parties and events.

Mr. Flynt has been highly regarded for his unique approach to food-truck cuisine with Famous Nater’s World Famous, which specializes in gourmet sandwiches and salads. 

“I’ve always planned to evolve from the food truck to a restaurant and am very excited that the time is right,” said Mr. Flynt. “Bringing awesome food to Houston Street will allow us to expand the menu and offer a convenient, full service experience to our guests. Of course, we’ll have all the delicious favorites that our customers love, along with creative new offerings for them to try.”

Mr. Flynt has engaged Billingsley Architecture to create an approachable and inviting space to personify the 2 Sons Kitchen & Market philosophy.

“The area around the Innovation District and Warehouse Row is gaining traction,” said broker Gerald McCormick, owner of McCormick & Company. “With so many new businesses and employees within a few blocks, the area needs a convenient, quick breakfast and lunch spot. We believe now’s the time to invest in the area, and we are thrilled to help connect Nate and his team with the space they need.”

Follow 2 Sons Kitchen & Market on Facebook for further announcements and previews of new menu items. 

The restaurant will create 10 to 12 jobs, and Mr. Flynt will be interviewing for experienced, guest and food-focused individuals for his kitchen as well as front of house staff.

Interested parties should apply on the restaurant’s website.
