Dan Krohmer, the chef behind the Japanese izakaya Hatsumi and the Baja-inspired Mexican fare at La Monja, decided to temporarily close the two restaurants at Fergusons Downtown at least through the end of August.
Krohmer, a finalist for a Best Chef Southwest award from the James Beard Foundation for his westside seafood restaurant Other Mama, reopened both Downtown restaurants in June, offering takeout dishes from Hatsumi and La Monja. Fergusons Downtown announced the temporary closing on Instagram.
“As we navigate these new normals, @hatsumilv & @lamonjalv will be temporarily closed, through August, to work on how to bring their best foot forward during these times. Stay tuned for when you can come pick up some delicious eats again ”
Jen Taler, Fergusons Downtown co-founder and creative strategist, tells Las Vegas Weekly that the temporary closings will help them regroup. “Hatsumi and La Monja are flagships of Fergusons, and we can’t wait to be able to bring them back, offering the experience the community has fallen in love with in a way that makes sense within current regulations and with our restaurant teams.”
Other Mama, a member of the Eater 38, remains open for takeout and delivery. Hatsumi is also on the Eater 38.
