The Old Sixth Ward Historic District project from original Beaver’s partners Adam Brackman and chef Monica Pope set chefs up with three-month residencies, acting as a temporary testing ground for their inaugural restaurants. Staff has been notified, and some will be joining the team at sister spot Axelrad, the Houston beer garden Brackman co-owns. Others have been offered financial support to help transition to a new job.
Residencies during Decatur’s short-lived run have included prix-fixe Thai dinners from Chopped winner Evelyn Garcia and a “Taco Tuesday” pop-up from chef Victoria Elizondo, both of whom have secured permanent homes at Politan Row – Kin and Cochinita & Co., respectively.
Garcia and Elizondo will bid adieu with a special menu at Decatur on Tuesday, October 29. Closing week specials include drink discounts and live music.
Brackman will be marketing the property for lease soon.
