Stone Fox’s Anticipated Opening Leads To Its Closure After Only 9 Months

It was a new Andersonville restaurant that had everyone talking even before it opened its doors. However, after a complete makeover and good reviews Stone Fox at 5721 N Clark has shuttered those doors after only nine months in business.

It was highly anticipated because it had the backing of a strong team. Fat Cat’s Cy Oldham spearheaded the concept that brought Stone Fox to the Andersonville neighborhood. Bringing in Band of Bohemia’s former baker Greg Hageli to take over the kitchen, the menu had global-inspired cuisine that was backed by solid reviews from customers and critics alike.

A long list of restaurants in the space included the Arkadash Cafe, the old Kingfisher, the Pork Shoppe and for those who can remember the famous Felice’s Round Table. Hopeful to break the string of recent business closures at the property, they overhauled the interior with a more comfortable and modern vibe. The team focused on the Summer with a large, transformed patio that included a new bar and iconic flowery mural on the side of the building.

Unfortunately, Stone Fox’s social media announced the end of the road less than one year after opening saying only that the fun they had over the summer was not enough to sustain them through the winter. They admitted it was a sudden closure but it was necessary to meet their financial obligations.

“It is with heavy hearts that we announce the closing of Stone Fox,” it said on the company’s social media. “Thank you all for welcoming us with open arms. We appreciate all of our neighbors helping us promote our corner spot. It breaks our hearts to have to close our doors.”
