6 Impressive Restaurants Opening DowntownNovember 16, 2015 20 comments Print Article
Downtown Jacksonville is in the midst of a culinary boom. Here's six impressive restaurants that will be opening over the next few months.
Ryan Reid, the owner of Folkfood, began his food truck operations a little more than a year or so ago. A favored food truck in Jacksonville, recently Folkfood folded its food truck operations to open a permanent brick-and-mortar establishment near Hemming Park in downtown. Reid, who has a background as a chef, is just one of the many owners of Jacksonville food trucks whose popularity has brought them out of a truck, and in to a building. While Reid doesn’t intend to run both the restaurant, and the food truck, himself, he does hope to sell the truck operation to keep it going.
Folkfood is located where the old Skyway Café just vacated. While the Folkfood food truck, like most trucks, was only ever open for a few hours, this location is open for both lunch and dinner, from 11 AM until 7 PM, Monday through Saturday. The menu items have been carried over, and Reid is working to attain a liquor license so that Folkfood can serve all sorts of libations.
