Seoul Shack Heads To St. Claude; Big Cheezy Takes Over Kitchen At Dragon's Den

Major expansions for two hot up-and-comers.


Mid City's grilled cheese powerhouse and cheap eats fave The Big Cheezy is taking over the kitchen at off-Frenchmen hang Dragon's Den as of October 1, Todd Price reports this week.  The Marigny spot was previously occupied by Seoul Shack—a 70s inspired Korean and soul pop up from Three Muses' co-owner Sophie Lee—which Price also reports shuttered just last week to make a move into a full fledged restaurant on St. Claude Avenue. Lee hasn't divulged the location yet, but expects to open by the end of year with an expanded menu.

At Dragon's Den, The Big Cheezy will offer bar-friendly sandwiches and cheese fries with a smaller menu than the flagship, but bestsellers like the Mac and Cheezy and the Crazy Old Goat will be available late into the night. The spot will be open Wed-Sun, 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. with plans to expand with lunch service after owner Josh Fogarty and crew settle in.
