The Urban Food Group, owners of Frazier’s, Porters, and Vivace is closing North Hills South Restaurant on June 7th only to reopen later this summer as a French Brasserie. A Brasserie is a cafe that serves casual dining faire.  The Urban Food Group will unleash its crack team of chefs to form an appropriate menu, something completely unique to this restaurant. The Johnson Studio has been hired to completely redesign the location- the most major change? Replacing the floor to ceiling windows with accordion style folding doors opening each side of the restaurant to the street, and adding a patio area with seating for 30.  Even if it is in a mall the restaurant sounds like it will set one hot scene. 

“A French brasserie has always been part of our long term plans; this is a fabulous location, situated in the heart of North Hills, and has the perfect floor plan for a lively French restaurant with a sidewalk café and patio,” explained owner Kevin Jennings.

    I liked South. I guess some felt they were trying to hard to make their food seem upscale. I’m sending NHB readers over here, since you broke this story.

    I’m glad to see this change coming. Although I was always impressed with the food, the quality of service has always been poor in my experiences there, unlike the other UFG properties. Hopefully they’ll revamp the wait staff as well.
