Hybird, Questlove's Chelsea Market fried chicken stand, has shuttered after less than six months in business. The Roots drummer opened the stand with mega restaurateur Stephen Starr back in May, selling $4 drumsticks and $41 chicken buckets, plus biscuits, dumplings, slushies, and "Questolicious" cupcakes.
A tipster writes in that Hybird closed yesterday, and employees were told the closure was due to poor sales. The stall is already emptied out and papered over with signs calling for pop-up chefs to fill the space in 2014. Questlove has not yet commented on the closing of his restaurant.
