Zagorski Opening Fairmount Restaurant
Chef Matt Zagorski, formerly of Rouge and 500º is turning L’Oca into Hickory Lane. A sign in the window promises the restaurant will serve “quality local farm fresh ingredients in modern recipes.” Listed as manager on the sign is Jack Henderson, who owned L’Oca with chef Luca Garutti.
L’Oca closed a couple weeks ago and just months after Garutti was arrested for driving under the influence.
It seems the project has been in the works since at least June when Zagorski’s name was attached to a project called 2025. 2025 Fairmount is the address of L’Oca and now Hickory Lane.
