News Roundup: The Wine Cellar, Jean-Robert’s Table, Brew River Gastropub, Le’s Cafe
- 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.
