Two Locally Owned Restaurants Closing

Two Jackson restaurants are set to close soon: Green Ghost Tacos in Fondren and The Feathered Cow in Jackson.

Green Ghost announced on Facebook that it will close on Sunday, Sept. 10, at 4 p.m. The current location will be demolished as part of the boutique hotel construction project in Fondren. The restaurant is looking to secure a new Fondren location and plans to relocate and reopen in January 2018. The restaurant’s Ridgeland location will remain open.

The Feathered Cow announced on Thursday, Sept. 7, that the restaurant’s Jackson location will close on Sept. 16 so the owners can focus on the other businesses, Rooster’s and Basil’s. The reservoir location will remain open.

We will be adding many of the menu items from the Feathered Cow to our other restaurants, Rooster’s and Basil’s in Fondren. And of course, please join us at The Feathered Cow on the Reservoir.
