Todd A. Price reports that Fat Hen Grocery has been shuttered as of yesterday, September 30. Chef/owner Shane Pritchett, an Emeril's Delmonico alum, opened the St. Charles eatery in June of 2011. Before that, he operated a Fat Hen for a brief time in Elmwood. Pritchett tells Price the decision to close was not an easy one, but that he plans to "re-emerge in the hospitality industry" at some point in the future.
