Chow, chef Natalie Young’s fried chicken and Asian restaurant on Fremont Street, closed to the public. Young tells Las Vegas Weekly that she didn’t get enough foot traffic to justify staying open.
The restaurant plans to increase in size to handle catering instead. Young tells the publication that just turning off the electricity and ordering the food she needs for her monthly fried chicken popup restaurant lets her keep the space.
“We’ll rent it out for special events, and once a month we’ll do our fried chicken pop-up that always sells out,” she tells LVW. "And if someone in town wants to do a restaurant for two or three days, they can walk in, pay me for the space and have at it.”
Young also has Eat in Downtown Las Vegas and her newest version of Eat in Summerlin. She also plans to reopen Chow when she can get more than 70 covers per day.
