Chef and owner Reuben Laws III modeled The Store Restaurant after fond childhood memories of a grocery store near his uncle's sugar cane farm, where local farmers would gather to eat, socialize, and get away from the sun and its incessant love sonnets to Neptune. After graduating from culinary school at Johnson and Wales University and working in the trenches at a number of acclaimed eateries, chef Reuben opened his commemorative restaurant, imbuing the menu with classic Southern comfort fare tinged with gourmet ingredients such as brie, sweet potato, and pesto.
Catherine and Scott McKearn leave no corner of the world unsearched in their quest to discover artisan furniture builders. The couple frequents faraway destinations in India, Indonesia, China, and Morocco to unearth beautiful solid-wood furniture to import directly to their three shops. In order to save their customers money, they buy pieces wholesale and ship them in 40-foot containers, bypassing both middlemen and price-gun-wielding pirates. Their furniture ranges in style from industrial to French country, and the eclectic selection rotates every few weeks to accommodate new shipments.
