Restauranteurs Chris Blackburn and Sarah Keith, the pair behind Josephine’s Bistro and Lindley Park Filling Station, are opening a new restaurant.

Keith confirmed that they plan to open Blackburn’s Smokehouse and Raw Bar at 310 S. Elm Street, next door to the future location of a new 1618 restaurant, via email this afternoon.

Don Smith, with property owner Trace Holdings, said that a lease was signed at 2 p.m. today but declined to give more information other than that a restaurant with local owners would open in the space.

The ill-fated Grass Fed used to be located in the building. Smith said the proprietors, who later operated 310 BBQ there, “basically walked out on us.” Scuppernong Books opened a few doors down at the end of 2013, starting a small wave of revitalization on the block.

Keith did not provide further information.
