Details about Parson's Chicken & Fish, the new spot from Land and Sea Dept. (Longman & Eagle partners Cody Hudson, Robert McAdams and Peter Toalson, along with Mode Carpentry's Jon Martin), started leaking this morning on Windy City Live. We learned of the location (2952 W Armitage Street), the concept (fish and chicken shack) and a few dishes (chorizo clam chowder, fried fish). Now we have one more detail to add: the chef.
His name: Hunter Moore. And here's everything we know about him: He has previously worked at Girl & the Goat, Lula Cafe and Nightwood; will "elevate 'typical chicken and fish joint offerings'"; and will be bringing a "mix of coastal, comfort, soul and street-food influences." Also on board is Max Wolod, a North Pond and XOCO alum who'll be overseeing the beverage program as General Manager.
The tentative opening date is mid-April, but look for events in the space in the weeks to come.
