Dallas local favorite Sugarbacon Proper Kitchen is all set to open an off-shoot sandwich concept within its space that will be named Butcher Board. The Sugarbacon team will remain the same, with manager Johnny Carros and chef Jon Thompson still at the helm, although this time offering a more casual, take-out style eatery. 

Chef Thompson explained that the focus of Butcher Board will be on chef-driven sandwiches prepared in a fast casual-esque environment. Yet don't expect this new concept to fall in alongside other similar sandwich shops. 

"It's not the assembly line of toppings, but instead chef-driven fully created sandwiches that you can watch be hand-carved," Thompson was quoted in Dallas CultureMap as stating.  Learn more about the opening here
