Waypoint Public to Open This Month in North Park

A trio of young locals replaces a North Park icon


Published:

There was an audible gasp uttered around 30th Street when Jay Porter announced he was closing The Linkery, followed by grumbles when we heard it was to reopen with more of the same (sausage and beer). Now we know Brian Jensen, co-owner of Bottlecraft beer shops, is teaming up with restaurateur Jon Pani and chef Amanda Baumgarten (formerly at Herringbone) to open Waypoint Public this month, with an eclectic menu of “neighborhood food” and a West Coast-heavy tap list. The space will have a lighter, brighter look inside and a new kids’ menu.
