Matt Horn, who finally opened his first ever popular Horn Barbecue restaurant in October after months of delay, is now on to something new. Kowbird, his fried chicken restaurant, will open later this summer in West Oakland, according to Eater SF.
Horn first showcased its concept of fried chicken as a pop-up in early 2020. Kowbird was originally supposed to open as a kiosk in a Jack London Square food hall (a project that lost a lot of momentum during the pandemic). ). Instead, the new restaurant is slated for 1733 Peralta St., just down the street from Horn Barbecue.
