A New Haven Independent article reported today that this project is being undertaken by someone we rly trust. That’s right—Richter’s is being restored and reopened by Caseus chef Jason Sobocinski. We like Richter’s, and we like Caseus, so we’re pretty down with this partnership.
Sobocinski gave the following brief statement to the Independent:
“We’re here to take over the old Richter’s space, restore it and turn it into a nice place for a relaxing drink in a beautiful atmosphere steeped in New Haven history. We’re keeping it secret for now until our Grand Opening! But we can tell you that this will not be any ordinary bar by any means. Think relaxed, adult, nostalgic, and 100 percent New Haven.”
Ugh, so secretive. There’s not any mention of an opening date or, like, anything. But we like the sound of “relaxed, adult, nostalgic” fun.
