Betelnut to Close and Transform in Hutong

After serving countless numbers of Singapore Slings, wok-fried green beans and minced chicken lettuce cups, Cow Hollow's venerable pan-Asian boite Betelnut will be undergoing the knife. Eighteen years after pioneering the concept of slinging Asian street food and other small plates in a swanky, see-and-be-seen setting, the management has decided to close and reopen with a fresh new small-plates concept, this one, according to the Inside Scoop, focused on the food found in hutongs, or back alleys of Beijing. Longtime chef Alex Ong, who announced the change on his social media site, will be staying on and overseeing the new menu which will offer dishes in the $9- $15 price range. The decor is also expect to morph to reflect the new concept but it'll be a quick turnover. Betelnut is set to close on March 3 and reopen as Hutong approximately one week later, somewhere around March 11.
