GREAT FALLS — Despite restrictions imposed due to the response to COVID-19 (coronavirus), Harvest Craft Kitchen officially opened for business in Great Falls this week.
It is located at 220 Central Avenue, in the space formerly occupied by the Taphouse Grill and Portofino's, and they have everything from burgers to sandwiches and salads.
Owner Matthew Black said, “The name says it’s a craft kitchen, so we are celebrating the craft of cooking fresh, local, wholesome food for everybody, I mean that was the whole idea with the concept there."
As for opening amid restaurant dining-room closures, Black admitted, "I feel insane, honestly! No, actually I think it’s a really good time for me to open to just to keep my overhead low and kind of work the kinks out and get people to come in."
At this point, the restaurant is only open for take-out orders and is open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. - but Black says they have big plans for the future: “Right now, we are just doing sandwiches and soup and salads, we have a burger. We are baking all the bread in-house all the meats are getting roasted here. Eventually, we are going to be working with as many local providers as possible - local farmers, beef farmers, local butchers - right now that’s what we are doing. Eventually, once the world goes back to normal, we can hopefully go into dinner with a farm-to-table style."
