“excited to share that both AKO by KENAKI and State Fair are opening this week at The Roost.

First, State Fair – the frozen custard and sundae shop from Buzz Bakeshop pastry chef Allie Cheppa – is open tomorrow after a soft opening this past weekend. Menu is pasted at the bottom of this email. We’re also offering a free custard cup for kids with the purchase of a sundae to celebrate opening weekend (available this Fri-Sun). State Fair is open Thursdays – Saturdays from 4 to 8 PM and Sundays from 12 to 4 PM.

Then on Friday, AKO by KENAKI will open. Chef Ken Ballogdajan and his sister Aki will focus on sushi and raw fish preparations for their counter at The Roost. The hours will be Wed-Fri from 4 to 10 PM; Saturdays from noon to 10 PM; and Sundays from noon to 8 PM.

As is the case with the other stalls, guests can order from all available menus via QR code on their phones while seated (inside or out) or for carryout.”
