Rumors of the Standard's demise greatly exaggerated, owner says

There are whispers in Reynoldstown that the Standard Food & Spirits in Grant Park would be shutting its doors next week.

Well, it actually closed yesterday. But just for renovations.

Owner Chris Johnson tells CL that he's shut down the filling-station-turned-neighborhood-restaurant to install 18 new taps, overhaul the seating area, and revamp the menu.

"We're redoing the menu to be more gastronomically friendly without getting too pretentious," Johnson says. Such regulars' favorites as the hummus plate will remain and beer selection will increase by 150 percent. Johnson says more details will be revealed on the restaurant's Facebook page as the project continues. (We're having a hard time finding the page. If you know the link, please leave it in the comments.)

They'll re-open on Feb. 20 to host a pub crawl, take a day off to conduct a final walkthrough, and then officially start back up on Feb. 22.
