Zoot Shutters to Make Way For BC Tavern

Despite saying they'd remain open until June 8, the Statesman reports that longtime Austin favorite Zoot closed yesterday (May 29).

The shutter date was moved up to make way for owners Stewart Scruggs and Mark Paul's BC Tavern, which will go into the same space and aims to open by June 20. According to the restaurant's website, the menu will be "comfortable American" with Southern influences and they'll have a bar with 20 wines served by the glass, cocktails, and beer.
