Executive Chef Dan Snowden announced Heisler Hospitality would be closing the West Loop restaurant and bar at 802 W. Randolph St. “indefinitely” because of the coronavirus pandemic.
“The juxtaposition of operations costs and limited capacities paired with health and safety concerns for guests and staff is what has ultimately led us to make this incredibly difficult decision,” Matt Eisler, co-owner of Heisler Hospitality said in a press release.
“Financially the model that we are trying to execute at Bad Hunter isn’t feasible until we’re at 100% capacity, and it’s obvious that we’re still very far off from entering ‘Phase 5,’” he said, referring to the stage of reopening that would allow for full capacity indoor dining.
Other Heisler Hospitality restaurants will begin to reopen in the next several weeks, the company said in a press release.
Heisler Hospitality opened the vegetable-forward restaurant and bar in October 2016. A grease fire forced the restaurant to close down for seven months from November 2018 to June 2019.
In announcing the closing, the restaurant group also detailed plans for a new pizza shop dubbed Pizza Lobo in Logan Square. The idea for the restaurant was born during the seven-month closing of Bad Hunter.
Heisler Hospitality plans to open the restaurant in this summer and operate on to-go service during the immediate future.
“Having such a large shift happen at once is extremely bittersweet,” Eisler said in a prepared statement. “It’s devastating to say goodbye to a place like Bad Hunter, especially when it’s not fully on our terms. But, it’s also the beginning of a new, really exciting chapter with Pizza Lobo.”
The closing of Bad Hunter also comes a day after One Off Hospitality announced the Michelin star Blackbird would be closing two blocks away.
One Off Hospitality partners told the Chicago Tribune operating at 25 percent capacity in an “incredibly small, tight dining room” was not feasible.
“At this point, you have to be nimble, because nobody knows what will happen in September, or even tomorrow,” Paul Kahan said.

Farewell and closing and to the letter of adjustment
Seville, Jul 14 (EFE) .- Betis says goodbye next Thursday to Benito Villamarín, closes a gray year in which it has not achieved any of its objectives, neither that of the European classification nor that of the Copa del Rey, and Until the new soccer program begins, the letter of adjustment of its squad enters into the hands of the Chilean Manuel Pellegrini.
There was a time in black and white in which many generations of Spaniards only watched a single television, which was until 2 opened as ‘UHF’ (Ultra High frequency), which started at a fixed time and ended at another time. it was also. There was no TV in the morning or at night because after the last program it played the ‘farewell and closing’ and the national anthem with the Kings and with the waving flag of Spain on the entire screen.
Although it may seem like science fiction to the new Spaniards, when the television was turned on at night there was only, until the broadcasts began the next day, a fixed shot with geometric motifs, first in black and white and in color from the early seventies of the 20th century, with which brightness, contrasts were adjusted, the screen in short: the adjustment chart.
That is where Betis enters almost since yesterday with the presentation as the new coach of Manuel Pellegrini, in a letter in which the one from Santiago de Chile must adjust troops so that his project begins to go with the tones, contrasts and brightness of those that he can equip your group until September 12 when the ball rolls again.
There is a coincidence in this, that Pellegrini’s choice, by curriculum and experience, is to adjust the pieces of a template that, player by player, is defined as good and to which one wants to optimize with the authority of those who have a plan of accredited work and teams in which it has been developed.
“We believe that with the hiring of Manuel Pellegrini we will maximize resources and winning will become a regular occurrence. He is very methodical, he exercises leadership in his teams,” technocratically illustrated the virtues of the Chilean president, Betic, Ángel Haro.
Manuel Pellegrini, who has signed for this three years for Betis, has already pointed out in his presentation the caliber and scope of the adjustments so that, in the new programming, the project is “more balanced” with a template that will be determined by availability economic of the club and a market that will be “atypical”.
Pellegrini is aware that some players will leave Betis and, without giving names, he has already outlined a plan for a team that wants it to be “attractive”, to “score goals, be a winner and ‘like’ also”, with a squad ” good man for man “, but in need of” leadership so that the usual trend is to win “.
Formally, the Chilean has not yet exercised, although he is already in charge and plans conscious that some players may leave, that the market will condition, that everything happens through joint work as the basis of success and that, once the duel against Alavés has been completed and Valladolid in Zorrilla, will already exercise with all the stripes to make all the adjustments to the letter that has been awarded.
