After spending five minutes at newbie The Churchill, chef Jason Tuley has moved on to a new venture. And that new venture is... the reboot of Barefoot Cafe on W. 3rd Street. However, it's important to note that, although the same Barefoot owners are involved, the restaurant will relaunch in January 2012 as a farm-to-table concept focused on simple food. Handmade pastas, charcuterie, and wood-fired pizza are just a few of the plates to come, and in two weeks Tuley plus pastry chef Jay R. Mendoza, will hold a demo pop-up for this new eatery in the shuttered Parlor space on Wilshire in Santa Monica. They plan to accept reservations via Facebook, Twitter (pages still TK), by calling 818-284-3109, plus walk-ins are always welcome.
The weekly changing five course menu costs $50 a head or $75 with supplemental wine pairing. Right now Tuley plus crew is still cleaning up The Parlor, but they expect to launch the pop-up in about two weeks with dinner service offered three to four nights per week for about four to six weeks. A few guest chefs are also slated to come by starting the second week, but that info is still tbd.
As for the name and full menu from the new venue, Tuley plans to reveal those details during the pop-up. [EaterWire]
