The original exterior of Harold's Cabin
The forthcoming Harold's Cabin restaurant (247 Congress St.) appears to be days away from opening, but with the interior design done and the menu complete (see below), we're told they've hired a new chef.
The original chef, Justin Moore, is out and Justin Pfau — most recently of most Trencherman and Avec in Chicago — is in. We're not sure what happened with Moore, but publicist Angel Powell says, "We were very happy to have Justin Moore on board until recently and we are thrilled to have Justin Pfau take over at this point. He's a great fit for the vision and concept of Harold's Cabin."
So what's the vision? Breakfast in the range of $8-$10 and daily items around $12-$19. That includes dishes like a bison burger and grilled chicken thighs on a buttermilk biscuit in the On a Roll section. The Kickshaw portion of the menu has smaller plates that include fingerling potatoes, corn hushpuppies, and the Harold & Lillian which is lox & latkes with apples and crème fraiche. The menu says a portion of sales of the dish will be donated to local Jewish Foundations in honor of Harold and Lillian Jacobs
who ran the corner spot for years after Harold's father opened it in the 1920s.
Once open, breakfast and lunch will be available at Harold's Cabin seven days a week, with dinner beginning shortly thereafter.
