Forequarter restaurant closing

Underground Food Collective’s co-founder, Jonny Hunter, a James Beard-nominated chef, says its acclaimed Madison restaurant, Forequarter, at 708 1/4 E. Johnson St., will close Sept. 21, according to a Cap Times report.

Hunter blames staffing problems primarily, but also acknowledged that the Collective’s latest project at the renovated Garver Feed Mill and its first public event this weekend is also requiring a lot of time and resources.

Underground Food Collective is the exclusive caterer for Garver events.
