The Wine Cellar is reopening on Hatch Street in the former home of the Mushroom Shop. They were forced out of their previous home on St. Gregory by a non-renewed lease.
Jared Whalen, formerly of the now-closed L’Auberge in Dayton and more recently Hugo, will be joining Jean-Robert’s table as Chef de Cuisine. He worked with de Cavel previously as chef at Chalk, Pho Paris, Pigall’s and The Maisonette.
Brew River Gastropub will open the first week of April. They are not brewing beer on site (making them a gastropub and not a brewpub) but a local brewery will be creating beers exclusively for them.
Le’s Cafe lost their lease inside the library (they’re the home of a fantastic Banh Mi which I will miss). They will close on May 19th and will be replaced with a yet-unknown food provider.
