Celebrated chef Jeremy Fox has been infamous for his many talents at Ubuntu in Napa, but has recently decided to relocate to Los Angeles to open his very own restaurant called Barnyard. This exciting news came about after consulting menus at Paper or Plastik and Freddy Smalls. Fox has always wanted to venture out on his own especially after former NY Times critic Frank Bruni declared Ubuntu one of the top 10 finds in the country, an accolade that wouldn’t be possible without Jeremy Fox.
In nearly six weeks, Barnyard will be opening its doors and replacing the Benice in Venice, with its earthy style that includes antique lights, a long chef bar up front, communal and non-communal dining in the restaurant’s back room, banquettes adjacent from the bar and a raw unfinished ceiling where the chef may even plan to hang burlap sacks from it.
As for the menu, Fox has prepared a menu full of delectable dishes: house-made charcuterie, veggie dishes and a range of comfort foods, along with beer and wines to wet your taste buds.
