A place to hang out: Spencer opens its doors

. November 1, 2015.
Spencer-Ann-Arbor

Abby Olitzky and Steven Hall want you to think of their new venture, Spencer, not as a restaurant, but more like an all-day neighborhood hangout, where you can come for scones in the morning and wine at night; Imagine hanging out in your neighbor’s well-stocked kitchen. The pair are already well-known for their open-air style through Central Provisions, a pop-up restaurant, catering business, and offerings of cheese and food classes operating for over three years in the Ann Arbor area. Spencer (which actually means “one who dispenses provisions”) will be a high-quality charcuterie, initially serving lunches, featuring small plates, sandwiches, soups, salads, and savory tarts and quiches. The restaurant will also be open for dinner in the near future. All ingredients will be responsibly sourced with a focus on local ingredient whenever possible.

Initial hours: 11am-3pm Wednesday-Monday (closed Tuesdays)
