Part market and part hip bar and restaurant, BLDG 5 under the Perkins Road Overpass is the kind of place where you can curate your experience, both throughout the multi-faceted space and on the menu.

The Protein Plate, for example, invites you to create a dish engineered with one of five proteins—chicken, steak, shrimp, salmon or tuna—and your choice of a changing lineup of seasonal veggie sides, plus one of four sauces—lemon butter beurre blanc, red pepper-based piri piri, herby Peruvian aji or Argentinian chimichurri. The plate also includes a grain combo of tri-colored quinoa and farro. “After you eat the Protein Plate, you feel good and have energy,” says co-founder Misti Broussard, who launched BLDG 5 with her husband Brumby. “And you can order it differently every time you come in and never get bored.”
