Estelle's closed on Memorial Day for two weeks of renovations, but Boston Restaurant Talk noted today that the Southern comfort food restaurant won't reopen for another week — and when it does, it will be called Cluckit!

tweet and photo show that new signage has replaced Estelle's facade on Tremont Street, and the bar posted it will reopen June 15 with "cold beer & hot chicken!!!"

Wilcox Hospitality Group opened Estelle's in 2012 with "kind of Gulf Coast style" cuisine from chef Brian Poe. The name came from a restaurant and club formerly located nearby the South End establishment.

At this point, it's not known how much the menu will change when the restaurant reopens as Cluckit! A Twitter user teased that there better be a brisket po' boy, an Estelle's offering, awaiting his return, and the quip earned a "favorite" from @EstellesBar. While Estelle's has always offered buttermilk fried chicken, as well as hot wings, hot chicken — as promised in the note to customers — is a specific type of dish, originating in Nashville, that the restaurant has previously not had on its regular menu.
