The upcoming Tucker-based Shular Institute is opening its flagship restaurant called FarmED Kitchen + Bar this summer inside the culinary school’s building, at 1927 Lakeside Pkwy. The concept, from Shular Institute and Shular Hospitality Group Founder Daryl Shular, will feature a “simplistic” take on modern cooking with locally sourced ingredients and is situated inside of PREP’s new Lakeside location which replaces a former Le Cordon Bleu culinary school. PREP offers shared kitchen spaces and is even home to ghost kitchens like the newly-opened Fazoli’s.
The 7,000-square-foot space that FarmED will operate out of will feature an open kitchen where guests can view the kitchen and culinary test lab while enjoying a drink from the custom craft bar. “This unique experience allows our guests to indulge in the rich sounds, aromatic aromas and witness the exciting visual experience of a fully engaged kitchen brigade,” FarmED’s website states.
FarmED’s farm-to-table breakfast and lunch menu will feature salads, custom sandwiches, and stone-baked pizzas and flatbreads. Their daily dinner menus will be created by Chef Shular and his culinary team. FarmED will also offer a private test lab dining experience that will place guests at the heart of FarmED.
Before Chef Shular founded Shular Institute earlier this year in March, he worked as the executive chef of Atlanta Athletic Club and directed their culinary department, consisting of five restaurants and dining outlets. The Shular Institute opens its doors to students beginning in the fall of this year.
Shular Institute will also feature a campus pastry shop that will offer international-inspired artisan bread, pastries, and desserts.
