Owner Stephen Hard said Thursday the place officially closed earlier in the week.
“We needed the restaurant business to sustain it,” said Hard, who reopened the restaurant last year. Previously a “Vito’s” and before that, a string of other unsuccessful restaurants, Hard, who is also executive director of the Greater New Britain Arts Alliance, has banked on the combination of lunches and dinners and nightly entertainment to turn the flailing location into a winner.
A recording at the closed restaurant states the place will be reopening under new management.
Hard said he tried to sell the business but there were no offers, however he expects the building’s landlord, Avner Krohn, may have someone who is interested.
