LA chef Susan Feniger has announced plans to relaunch her Los Angeles restaurant STREET as Mud Hen Tavern. STREET shuttered earlier this month after more than four years in business, and now Feniger reveals that the plan is to totally redo the concept. Mud Hen Tavern will serve "seasonal, gourmet pub and comfort food" overseen by executive chef and partner Kajsa Alger and a new bar program will be headed by Morgan Fox (Upstairs II, Pourtal Wine Bar). The food will be "rustic" with "global inflections," while the beverage program will have a "vibrant and accessible selection of international wines, local craft beers and artisanal cocktails."
Alger is quoted in a press release saying that most of the "original crew" of STREET is remaining on board for Mud Hen Tavern. The new restaurant will be open for private events on December 4, and open to the public on December 7. In regards to the now-shuttered STREET, Feniger says "it's still going to live on in lots of exciting ways, including new locations and a robust catering business." Stay tuned for more.
