Revisit: Gallery Pastry Shop

Keefer worked with the local artists of Blice Edwards to incorporate postmodern details.

HER ORIGINAL northside location had its charms, but Gallery Pastry Shop owner Alison Keefer won’t miss the logistical challenges of that tucked-away flagship. “We’ve been cooking on butane burners with no hood, and our walls were literally crumbling,” says the restaurateur who moved the operation to a more suitable spot in March. 

With an eye toward honoring the building’s existing 1930s Art Deco-inspired design, Keefer worked with the local artists of Blice Edwards to incorporate postmodern details, such as vintage amber glass and textured arches, into the restaurant’s new home (the former Next Door American Eatery). Other upgrades include a three-way liquor license and a new bar program; a heated, dog-friendly patio; and a private dining space with its own entrance. 4573 N.
