George Weld is closing his two-year-old Williamsburg restaurant Parish Hall after service on Friday, with plans to move his beloved Southern breakfast/lunch spot Egg into the space in a few weeks. Parish Hall's chef Evan Hanczor will run the kitchen at this new version of Egg. Weld and his crew will make a few changes to the space, and the new Egg will accommodate more guests, so hopefully that will cut down on the wait time for brunch. Egg will stay open in its current location until the renovations at Parish Hall are finished.
Although Parish Hall got good reviews from the handful of critics that visited, it never generated the same level of buzz as Egg, which is packed solid on the weekends. Weld says that he's not sure what will happen to the old Egg space yet. The restaurateur also operates a farm upstate, which provides some of the produce for Egg, and his team runs a popular Hash Bar at Smorgasburg.
