Shipp told Dayton.com he is not ready to open the restaurant, CULTURE By Chef Dane, just yet, but plans to do pop-ups from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. every Friday and 2 p.m. to 2 a.m. every Saturday through his walk-up window. He may add a Tuesday or Thursday as well. He hopes to open the restaurant in four to five weeks.
Shipp is a Dayton native who grew up in Jefferson Twp. He began cooking when he was around 10 years old, mostly for close friends. Growing up, he played basketball, his first love, but after getting injured his senior year of high school he decided to rethink his career path.
He previously described getting injured as a “blessing in disguise.”
Prior to doing pop-ups, private dinners and catering, Shipp worked at Chappys Social House and Lock 27 Brewing.
He describes having his own spot as “unreal” and an “amazing feeling.”
Last week he hosted his first pop-up.
“Everybody came out,” Shipp said. “Some people came two days in a row.”
This week’s pop-up menu will feature Hibachi Burritos, the Drip Burger, Homemade Donuts and Sweet P’s Ice Pops. For more information, follow the restaurant’s Instagram page.
