The kitchen will serve comfort food like mac-n-cheese, Southern fried okra and fried chicken. In a recent Facebook post, they specifically asked what things people like at the old Foundry and fried-chicken joint, Chicken Scratch.

The Foundry 2.0 will be closed Monday through Wednesday and will open Thursday through Saturdays at 4 p.m. and will also have a Sunday brunch. Follow their Facebook page for updates.
