Industry vets Lindsay Collins, Philip Michael Cohen, and Nikki Fairman, also known as the hosts of Effin B Radio, will start their own headquarters/bar in the former Bad Wolf Coffee space at food hall Workshop. This comes after the news that Jonathan Ory, former owner of Bad Wolf Coffee, stepped away from the business, and that Cohen departed from his position at Bar Normandy.
Eater spoke with Collins, on a rare night off from her position at FIG, and she says that the former 1503 King St. coffee shop will now be Effin B Radio Headquarters, where the the team will record their witty podcast on all things food and beverage. Though, starting at 5 p.m., on Thursdays through Sundays, the space will be open to all as a bar until midnight.
Fairman will bring her booze expertise to the cocktail list, and Collins and Cohen will create the beer and wine list, which will probably rival most in town, given their years working at FIG, which was nominated for a James Beard Award for Outstanding Wine Program in 2017.
The Effin B Radio Headquarters, which hopes to attract much of the food and beverage crowd, opens on Thursday, March 1, at 5 p.m. For more information on the trio’s “one super-small, major announcement,” catch the latest episode of the podcast.
