Union Provisions Menu; Opening This Weekend?

There are rumors circulating that King Street newcomer Union Provisions will open this weekend. Their Facebook page hints at soon. This is the first restaurant from co-owners Ben Russell-Schlesinger and Robert Young, and they've kept the details close to their chests. A trusted source told us the waitstaff is in place and training has begun. Spying through the windows at 513 King St. reveals that tables and chairs are set up for potential patrons.

Chef Shane Whiddon has not released a menu, but Eater was shown a copy of the employee training manual and has gleaned a sort of makeshift menu from our browsing. No prices were listed, and these are merely rough descriptions, but it should give readers a better understanding of the "American Bistro" feel the staff is going for. From previous conversations with Russell-Schlesinger and Young, it is best to assume these items are small plates meant to be shared.
