Jason McClure: Villains to open early February

Last July, HD1’s executive chef Jarred Lee Pyles announced he was leaving the haute doggery to open a sandwich shop with FLIP’s Jason McClure and Grindhouse Burgers’ Alex Broustein. In September, the boys held a pop-up at Miso Isakaya, showcasing their “wickedly good” sandwiches, which they had initially planned to sell from the Old Fourth Ward. Fast forward a few months, and the chefs have instead secured the Little Azio space in Midtown, with Villains set to open there in February 2013. We checked in with McClure to get details.

Villains to hold pop-up lunch shop at Miso Izakaya

Back in July, we talked with Jared Lee Pyles about his decision to leave HD1, the Richard Blais 'haute doggery,' to start a new sandwich shop, Villains, with Jarred McLure and Alex Broustein of Grindhouse Killer Burgers. There had been some speculation at the time about the location of the sandwich shop, which was rumored to be opening in the Old Fourth Ward. Unfortunately, negotiations are still ongoing at two different locations, one in Old Fourth Ward and one in Midtown. They hope to have settled on a location soon.
