Hodge's Restaurant Downtown to Close at Year's End

Hodge's, the first brick-and-mortar restaurant from food truck pioneer Chris Hodgson, will close at the end of this year. The restaurant was opened in 2012 by Hodgson and Scott Kuhn, whose Driftwood Restaurants and Catering went on to open Washington Place Bistro, Cibreo, Bin 216, Republic Foods and Green Rooster Farms.

Kuhn said that the decision to let the lease expire at the end of the year was made in part to better focus his company's efforts on Playhouse Square, where the bulk of their operations exist.
