Ambitious real food eatery a sign of Corktown's revival

A massive new restaurant is getting ready to open at 573 King St. E. in Corktown. The 5,000 square-foot Impact Kitchen will serve what they're referring to as nutrient rich, real food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They'll also have an in-house juice bar and a cafe.

Head chef Stephanie Tucci is a culinary nutritionist and a fitness specialist, which explains Impact's mission to deliver local, organic and minimally processed food to diners. She, along with owner Josh Broun, hope to open in September.

A current Craigslist posting for a Senior Prep Cook says "Impact Kitchen believes we can transform the way people think about food and turn the way the food industry services customers."

Along with newcomers Roselle Desserts, Odin, Corktown Kitchen and Cocina Economica, Impact Kitchen is just the latest small business looking to contribute to Corktown's revival.
