About this project
CAN YOU BELIEVE WE'RE ALREADY AT THIS FORK IN THE ROAD!?
It's so hard to imagine that these past two years have blown by so quickly!
For those of you who don't know us, we're PushStart Kitchen, a husband + wife-founded, community-focused, family-fueled underground supper club in Atlanta, GA. For almost two years now, we've been rubbing two thin dimes together and working our fingers to the bone in an effort to feed all of Atlanta.
We started serving dinners to ten guests at a time one night a week in a small art studio - that we turned into a dining room - in the belly of a 130-year-old factory, and we're now up to four dinners a week, serving 18 guests at a time. Now, we're ready to make the next step: A for-real, no-joke restaurant!
For us, the best thing about our service at PushStart is the personal interaction we have with the amazing people we're feeding! We feel it's so important to keep that intimacy that the new spot is only going to seat about forty guests. Ten or so of those seats will be directly in front of our completely open kitchen, where the cooks will serve guests directly. We kitchen-types work far too hard not to see anyone eat! Now we'll get to chat too (and maybe slip you little tastes as we work)!
Our small menu will rotate frequently to reflect what we're inspired by that day.
NOW we've found the space, this is where you come in!
From the very minute we decided to open a brick + mortar restaurant, we've known that we wanted our project to be community-funded for one simple fact: We couldn't have made it this far without your support! And we recognize we won't make it another step without it either.
All of the money that you'll be contributing to this campaign is going toward getting this baby restaurant off the ground. Everything from build-out, equipment and legal fees to silverware, napkins, and glasses will benefit from your contributions.
Take a peek to the right at all of the rewards we've put together for our campaign. We had ourselves a sit-down and made a list of ideas that we knew we'd be excited to fulfill for all of you, and we hope you'll feel the same.
Thank you so much for coming by; we can't wait to see you at the new restaurant soon. In the meantime, follow us on FACEBOOK (facebook.com/pushstartkitchen), TWITTER and INSTAGRAM (@pushstartcook) and, most importantly, go to pushstartkitchen.com to sign up for our supperclub invite mailing list.
Come get fed!

Risks and challenges
While we fully recognize that anything can happen in this crazy world, we feel like the biggest obstacle in fulling some of these rewards would be if the build-out of the restaurant runs longer than expected. We have faith that once we have the restaurant open, we will soon after be welcoming everyone in to the project you helped put together!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
At this very moment, we're keeping it a bit of a secret. We've promised everyone that every time our donation total goes up $1000, we'll release a new clue in the comments section. Keep checking back for updates!
Absolutely! In fact, one of the biggest reasons for us to open a restaurant was to be able to accommodate as many people's dietary needs as we can. The plan with the tasting menu was to serve you a meal based around your needs. So weather you're paleo, vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, or just aren't really all that into a certain ingredient, we'll do our best to get you set up. We do, however, make a point to avoid serving cannibals at all cost.
