Root Note food truck will take over The Pour House container walk-up kitchen currently occupied by Micho, Eater Carolinas reported Monday. Root Note owner Josh Taylor will take this week off before restarting service Monday with an expanded menu including Sunday brunch, he told the City Paper. 

“We have expanded our menu and offer a variety of globally-inspired street food classics,” he said. “Our hours will definitely vary due to show times, but Monday through Saturday we will open at 5 p.m., and Sunday we open at 11 a.m. with a special brunch menu for the farmer’s market.” 

Taylor has been stationed at The Pour House since January for a Monday and Tuesday evening residency, while Micho operated the other five nights of the week. Micho, owned by David and Tina Schuttenberg of Kwei Fei, located next door to The Pour House, made the decision to close due to “labor challenges looming” and “to focus on our next project a bit more,” David told Eater. The Schuttenbergs previously hinted at opening a Cantonese restaurant called Lady Xian with a menu based on dishes served during parts of the pandemic year.
