Bardstown Rd. comings and goings

On a recent morning walk, I noticed that the former Stout is now home to Faces Bar/Bistro. A little internet digging revealed that this is the new venture from Eric Morris, of Gospel Bird and Hull & High Water fame. The Facebook photos look intriguing and I was a fan of Hull & High Water (never made it Gospel Bird, sadly), so I'll definitely swing by there soon for a pick-up.
Across the street and down a couple blocks, I noticed that the new El Mundo now sports an "Opening Soon" sign taped to the window. I always liked the layout of that spot, whether as Asiatique or Flavor, so I'm really looking forward to enjoying that menu in a slightly less funky atmosphere (not that there's anything wrong with funky, except in certain contexts).
Sadly, on the other end of the spectrum, I was sad to see Cozy Kitchen close up shop. I had hoped they would be able to hang on, especially since their take-out business model seemed well suited for the times. I'll miss their mac and cheese and various casseroles.

Yeah, I've been following Faces. Eric has been doing an extended soft opening but expects to launch with his full menu in a couple of weeks ... July 14, if I remember correctly. Looks like very interesting stuff.

I went to Faces once, really good. I had a fine chicken sandwich, can now see the Gospel Bird connection. The prices are good too, side included with each $12 or so sandwich, so I'll be back. They are not tapping the drafts until they can be at full capacity.

Very glad to hear about El Mundo -- that spot has taken some hits in recent years, but I think El has a lot of area fans and should do well. I think that, along with the (lesser, imo) Noche might be one reason why Migos made the switch to the Hammerheads format.
