Thoreau (1033 Spring Garden St.), which opened only Feb. 2, is closed, chef/owner Mike Jackson has confirmed.

"Kind of a big mess" is how Jackson described the situation with his partners. He said they differed over work being done on an outdoor seating area.

He said he's back at Blue Sage, his vegetarian place in Southampton, "with my tail between my legs -- but energized," he said sheepishly.
