Grabbing a healthy lunch or dinner to-go is about to get a whole lot easier thanks to chef and caterer Callie Salls, who’s opening her first storefront, Meyer & Sage, late this month. (Salls is responsible for those artistic cheese and charcuterie boards garnished with flowers and fruits you’ve seen all over Instagram and at Fort Worth’s poshest parties.)
Named for her favorite ingredients, the grab-and-go shop will be located in the new Foundry District off Carroll Street. It’s where patrons will be able to sit and sip Topo Chico or kombucha with a salad or sandwich, or pick up meals to-go, like meatloaf and brown butter mashed potatoes.
“We’re proud to be one of the few food businesses that use all organic pasteurized chicken, all wild caught fish, and humanely and sustainably raised beef, lamb and pork. Our cooking oils are organic, too” says Salls, who launched Meyer & Sage as a meal delivery service in 2016. Salls will continue meal delivery, but says the storefront provides customers an option to pick up party trays and even retail items.
“We’ll carry everything from smoked sea salt to hand-dipped birthday candles,” she says. “It’s also an event space. We have a large semi-private room where we’ll also do cheese board demonstrations and cooking demos.”
By next spring, Salls hopes to have her beer and wine license.
“Over time, people can come in and grab a bottle of rosé and sit on the patio.”
Salls plans for a soft opening by the end of October, with a grand opening party set for November 1 from 5 to 8 p.m.
