Liberty Kitchen Garden Oaks shutters

Tuesday, 21 November 2017, 09:38:41 AM. F.E.E.D. TX Restaurant Group closes its Garden Oaks location citing lost revenue from street project and Hurricane Harvey; three other Liberty Kitchen restaurants remain open

Hurricane Harvey can chalk up another restaurant casualty. The Harvey flooding is partially to blame for Sunday's closing of Liberty Kitchen Garden Oaks at 3715 Alba.

The F.E.E.D. TX Restaurant Group announced Monday it closed its Garden Oaks restaurant on Nov. 19. The group, which operates three other Liberty Kitchen concepts, stated that a months-long construction project in the area which blocked access to the restaurant created "a drop in traffic and revenue" that it couldn't sustain. Even though the restaurant remained open during the street improvement project (and launched a new menu and beer garden when it was completed), the "financial strain we experienced early on is one we were unable to recover from in the longer run."

And Harvey, F.E.E.D. said, "served as an additional financial hurdle company-wide, as it did for so many restaurants around Houston."

The company thanked its Garden Oaks and Oak Forest neighbors for their patronage and its staff for their hard work. The restaurant opened in the summer of 2016.

F.E.E.D. TX continues to operate Liberty Kitchen & Oyster Bar, 1050 Studewood; Liberty Kitchen & Oysterette, 4224 San Felipe; and Liberty Kitchen at the Tree House, 963 Bunker Hill.
