(AllHipHop News) ?uestlove’s chicken shack Hybrid will be closing, but not without The Roots drummer bidding it an appropriate adieu. In a lengthy Facebook post, ?uestlove wrote an 800-word eulogy for Hybrid, explaining reasons for its closure and flex his blog writing.
In the midst of the random pop culture references and foodie comparisons to J. Dilla, ?uestlove explains that he and co owner Stephen Starr are closing the store but even he questions the move:
kinda weird to pull the plug considering the bird’s critical swag: cover of new york magazine, mentions in the new york times, bon appetit, food & wine, elle, the new yorker, zagat, paper magazine, new york post, village voice, time out, the hollywood reporter, vogue and a cameo on the view where sherri shepard and jenny mccarthy came to hybrid to meet me for lunch.
While ?uest says everything except a reason for its closure, Eater NY reports that a tipster has informed them that employees as Hybrid were told the closure was due to poor sales.
Hybrid opened in May of this year.
