John Tesar’s Spoon restaurant closing December 31


Chef John Tesar told me a few minutes ago that he is shuttering his acclaimed seafood restaurant Spoon Bar & Kitchen after New Year’s Eve dinner service tomorrow night.

Tesar and Chanticleer Holdings, Inc., which own the restaurant, have agreed to part ways. Tesar says he plans to reprise Spoon “in a different location to be announced at a later date.” He’s also moving ahead with Fork, an Italian restaurant he’s developing in Dallas.

Spoon opened in 2012 and won several accolades, including being named “Best New Restaurants in the World” by Conde Nast Traveler, “Best New Restaurants of America” by Bon Appetit and “Best New Restaurants” by Esquire.
