Chef Matt McCallister is prepping to open his much-anticipated new Oak Lawn restaurant, Homewood, and he sounds emboldened by two things: more kitchen space than at his now-shuttered FT33 and a less restrictive approach than he once had at that acclaimed spot.

McCallister walked D Magazine through the in-construction Homewood and dropped the nugget that he plans to open in early February, with a tentative opening date of February 5. He also spilled more details on the once-secretive project, which will include a hearth for wood-grilling, a separate kitchen for pastry chef Maggie Huff, a pasta-cooking station, and a patio with on-site gardens.

As for the menu, he plans on straying from the hyper-local sourcing he once demanded and keeping dishes a bit simpler. “I won’t be as hyper insane about changing the menu every week, either,” he told the magazine. Instead, diners will find a perfect green salad, Parker House rolls decked out in decadent Parmesan mornay sauce accented by chicken drippings, grass-fed steak, faro milled in house, and biodynamic wines on the wine list.
