Whether it's their famed Revival Dog with Mangalitsa pork or the kolaches and kobasneks that sell out every Saturday morning, Revival Market is as known for its prepared food offerings as its fresh, local market offerings.
Now owners Ryan Pera and Morgan Weber are expanding even more in that direction with Coltivare, an Italian restaurant set to open next spring just a few blocks east of Revival on White Oak Drive.
Coltivare, which is Italian for cultivate, will include a 3,000-square-foot garden that will source fruit, vegetables and herbs for both the restaurant and the market.
"This project has grown very naturally out of the dining events we've held at the Market and the unique community of food lovers that have supported Revival's growth," Morgan Weber said in a press release. "Our goal is to provide our neighborhood with a family-friendly gathering space where the food and wine taste incredible, and the diners can trust the integrity of the ingredients and the menu."

Pera will oversee the menu development, while Revival chef de cuisine Vincent Huynh will man the Coltivare kitchens on a day-to-day basis.
Look for family-style dining options, including homemade pasta, wood oven pizza, small plates and salumi and cheese options straight from Revival. Pera says entrees like garganelli with slow-braised beef ragu and Revival pork roast with clams and chorizo over heirloom polenta could be on the menu as well.
Are you looking forward for more from the Revival guys?
