Expanding its portfolio of properties, the Drake Hotel brand is slated to open the Drake Commissary in June. Set in a historic brick and beam condiment factory, the 8,000-square-foot space will be home to the Drake’s production kitchen and bakery. Designed by the teams at Tongtong and BLT, the historically restored building has exposed vents, thick wooden beams, and wooden blueberry cases complete with blueberry stains. The Commissary, overseen by Drake corporate executive chefs Ted Corrado and Jonas Grupiljonas, will provide food to the eatery, bakery, bar, and larder. The dining room, which seats 140 or holds 160 for receptions, as well as the 40-seat patio, has regular table service and offers a view into the production kitchen.
