After less than six months of serving international curries and soft serve in Mexicantown, Fist of Curry is closing its doors. The short-lived restaurant announced its impending closure on Friday afternoon. Its final day of service will be Sunday, July 8.
“From everyone on our team, we want to thank you for helping us actualize the Fist of Curry dream,” the restaurant wrote in a statement to followers on Facebook. “We’ve been honored to share this concept of world curry and it’s been our pleasure to serve you during our brief tenure at 2547 Bagley Avenue, but the corner of 18th and Bagley has other plans.” Eater has reached out to the Fist of Curry team for more details on the closure.
Owned by Green Dot Stables and Johnny Noodle King hitmakers Inlaws Hospitality, Fist of Curry slipped into Mexicantown in mid-February. The restaurant which served dishes like chicken tikka masala and Japanese kare curry replaced former Inlaws Hospitality restaurant the Huron Room. The owners made the switch with a whirlwind 72-hour makeover that gave the new restaurant a 1970s look.
Co-owner Jacques Driscoll indicated that the group had been interested in developing a curry restaurant but that properties in the area had become prohibitively expensive, so the group decided to test the project in the existing space at the corner of Bagley and 18th Street.
