We are a VB lovin' husband and wife entrepreneurial team with a passion for good craft beer and eclectic, curated foods. As a classically trained chef (Tim) and an experienced restauranteur (Kristina) we were drawn to a VB Historical Registry 1940's era building in the Arts and Culture District to develop a space dedicated to the art of food, beverage and conversation. We share a strong social and environmental conscience that is evident in our sustainably-sourced and repurposed building features and our precious green space where we grow much of our food. Our hood is gritty, but thriving with promising artisan businesses and people who, like us, are dedicated to paying homage to the experience of quality food and drink and once again facilitate a local community of those that want to be part of this movement. Esoteric seeks to provide a further understanding of craft beers and elevated foods and the contextual experience this provides. Not in some stuffy, snobby way but in a relatable, accessible and empowering way. Let us get deep for a moment and think about food and beverage, truly what is a more basic and primal need? It even surpasses shelter in the hierarchy of basic human needs. It transcends cultures and geographic locations, it transcends time as something that has always been and that always will be, it has no beginning and no end. There is beauty in that. Now let us elevate food and drink from a basic need to a fully met need and talk about the shared experience food and drink provide. The food and drink experience can be celebratory, sensual, uncomfortable, lonely, empowering, intellectual, standard or exquisite. Esoteric wishes to respect food and drink, pay homage to its experience and once again facilitate a community of those that understand and want to be a part of this experience. Esoteric wants to make this experience understood by many, not just few. Esoteric will do this by providing carefully and beautifully selected craft beers and modern American cuisine, that is #WhatisEsoteric
