The Cut Has Closed After One Year Inside Cherokee's Fortune Teller Bar

Chef Ari Jo Ellis has closed her sausage concept, the Cut (2635 Cherokee Street), after just over a year in business.

The scoop comes from Sauce Magazine, which reports that Ellis wanted to focus on opening Morning Glory, the diner-style eatery she'll be opening in the former home of Vista Ramen. “It wasn’t an easy decision, but it was something I had to do mentally,” she told the food magazine.

The Cut was a humble operation tucked in the back of Fortune Teller bar, but Ellis' whole-animal butchery and creative sausage-based offerings earned raves. The RFT's Cheryl Baehr gave it a gushing review in January; we also recently included it in our hotly competitive Bar Guide 2018 list of places with the best bar food.

South city sausage lovers, however, need not despair: There's another sausage concept right down the street on Cherokee, Frankly on Cherokee — and it too has us gushing.
