Restaurant news from Anchorage: a chef leaves, a coffee shop relocates

Two places that have made the upscale suburban community of Anchorage an eating attraction are undergoing some changes. Geoffrey Heyde, the chef who helped put the Village Anchor Pub and Roost on people’s worth-the-trip list, has resigned after 5 1/2 years on the job. and the Anchorage Café, 11505 Park Rd., a popular breakfast, lunch and coffee spot, has lost its lease and is relocating downtown.

Heyde has been with the Village Anchor Pub and Roost, 11507 Park Rd., since it opened, and has been responsible for developing the menu and shepherding the new restaurant into a popular spot in the dining mix. He simply said that it is time for him to move on professionally, and that he has some opportunities that he is considering.

Village Anchor Pub & Roost owner Kevin Grainger has recently opened Le Moo Steakhouse in the Lexington Rd. site that for many years was KT’s.

The neighboring Anchorage Café, a more modest effort, but appealing and successful as a casual coffee shop, lunch and brunch spot, has announced that it will make a major location change, from the eastern suburbs to E. Market St. The name will change to Press on Market, and, when it opens later in the fall, it will feature an espresso bar, baked goods and smoothies.

On the Café’s Facebook page, owner Bruce Lake posted this message: “While we are saddened to close the Café, we are excited about a new venture that we will soon undertake in a purpose-built downtown Louisville location on Market Street. It’s an innovative concept in a striking location, and it will feature some Café favorites.”
