After more than a decade as one of Henderson Ave’s most reliably solid restaurants, Hibiscus will close its doors.
A press release from Raised Palate Restaurants, which owns Hibiscus and nearby Victor Tangos, says that the restaurant will close because the lease for the space at 2927 N. Henderson has expired. Hibiscus employees will be “considered” for posts at other Raised Palate concepts.
Hibiscus rose to particular prominence under the direction of Chef Graham Dodds, who helped the restaurant shed its reputation as a simple steakhouse with a hyper-local approach to farm-to-table fare. Dodds departed the restaurant last year to open his Lower Greenville restaurant Wayward Sons, and left it in the hands of his former sous chef Nick Ocando, who left earlier this summer.
Hibiscus will host its last dinner service on Saturday, September 24, which means that you’ll have to go relive all those old memories at this perennial favorite before the end of the week.
