Though only seven months old, Black Hogg in Silver Lake is already undergoing a renovation to prepare for its beer and wine license. According to LAist, the restaurant has been closed for more than a month after getting the go-ahead from the Silver Lake Planning Comission. According to recent tweets, chef Eric Park plans to reopen in about to to three weeks. Park is looking to add some interesting beverages, like old-world and sparkling wines that will complement the food. They'll also have sour and hoppy beers — basically brews of interest for the meat-centric cooking coming out the kitchen.
Black Hogg's shutter and renovation went relatively unnoticed, though it seemed necessary once the BYOB program ended. After a solid review from SIV (one of her last official reviews), Black Hogg decided to pursue a full beer and wine license. It's the only real way a restaurant can survive these days, even with a positive review from the local critic.
