This Saturday, Dec. 7, Susan Feniger and executive chef Kasja Alger will reintroduce their Hollywood restaurant as Mud Hen Tavern, complete with new menus and a new look. The business partners closed the previous iteration, Street, for an overhaul earlier last month. Feniger told Squid Ink that she felt the restaurant may not have been a good fit for the neighborhood.

With Mud Hen Tavern, Feniger and Alger are offering a neighborhood pub instead. The renovation included the addition of communal tables, booths and a bar with a draft beer system. The food and drinks menus will emphasize hearty fare, cocktails and regional beers.
The food menu will be seasonal, changing three to four times a year, and designed with various dietary preferences in mind. There are chicken and waffle croquettes, fried chicken Cobb salad and a spicy black bean veggie burger. Four pizzas will be available, with three that can be baked with vegan cheese instead at no extra cost. Meat-eaters will have to have pay extra to add housemade sausage to their pies.More »
