Barnyard Buzz Kill: Jeremy Fox is Out at Venice Restaurant
The elections aren't the only thing getting heated and political today: Eater commenters are getting wily over the news of chef Jeremy Fox's departure from Venice restaurant Barnyard, speculating as to why the highly-anticipated project has seen such a sudden divide.
Fox had been planning on manning the kitchen at Barnyard since May, and had been testing and developing the menu ever since. During that time, Fox pushed out popular meals at Test Kitchen and other summer food festivals, showing off the chops that earned him the first Michelin star to ever be awarded to a vegetarian chef at Northern California's Ubuntu restaurant. The build up to the opening seemed to take forever; originally it was thought that Barnyard would open in early July, but the project saw delay after delay.
The investors at Barnyard put in a call to the team at Eater last night announcing the split, with Fox and his entire front of house team heading their separate ways. Fox and his team are keeping it very PC as to to why they are out.
"It's unfortunate that it didn't work out with this group, but we're leaving as a team and working on a new project," says Fox.
Fox may be cooking the last night of the Test Kitchen series at Bestia this weekend, but word has yet to come as to where he and his team will land after that. Stay tuned for more updates.
