Has Shimo Closed?

Has Shimo shuttered?

An enigmatic Tweet this afternoon from Chef Douglas Keen of Shimo Modern Steak (Cyrus, HBG).

An intrepid BiteClubber tipped us off that the website seems to confirm that the restaurant may be going dark. Another troublesome sign: OpenTable is not accepting reservations.

Keane has not yet returned phone calls to confirm the closure, but this all seems like bad news.
A signal of things to come? Unfortunately, rumors are swirling throughout the county about a number of restaurants, and it could be a long, difficult winter for many. Stay tuned.

  3. That place coulda killed it but they didnt listen to everyone, didnt set their dining roomvat nite, didnt treat their staff well and bu bye. A simple quality steakhouse would just kill in hberg. Pair up with Ken Tominaga and do it right.

  4. What a shame. Only recently discovered this gem, but dined here at least four times. Amazing steaks–enjoyed the bone in ribeye and the short ribs. Pickles were spot on, as well as the bean sprouts. What I could never understand is with all the Japanese influence, why no rice?!
