Kineapple Says Farewell on Sunday

Kineapple, the healthy food spot in the Bottling Dept. Food Hall at Pearl, announced that Sunday, Sept. 25, is its final day of service.

In its place, El Diente De Oro will join the Bottling Dept. for a temporary pop up. The concept by Orlando and Susan Aguirre, who run Chilaquil, serves food inspired by Northern Mexico, like carnes asadas and botana para picar. The pop up will open in early October.
