A little more than two months after closing beloved Southern dining spot Kitchen 713, chef James Haywood will begin serving brunch on the weekends at daiquiri destination Candy Shack.
Haywood will take over the kitchen at the Candy Shack location at 5111 Washington Avenue, according to a post to the daiquiri shop’s Instagram account. Candy Shack has been previewing a number of dishes that Haywood plans to serve at the pop-ups, including egg-topped avocado toast, shrimp and grits, eggs Benedict, and smoked salmon served on crispy latkes.
The new brunch offerings fill the void left by Haywood when he abruptly shuttered Kitchen 713 at the end of October 2018. When it shuttered, Haywood and co-owner Ross Coleman hinted that a new restaurant could be in the works, and promised that these pop-ups were en route. Here’s hoping that Haywood’s residency at Candy Shack is a test kitchen of sorts for an upcoming project.
Haywood will serve brunch at Candy Shack on Washington Avenue on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. for the foreseeable future, starting on January 5. Scope out a few of the dishes he’s been teasing below.
