Agrario on Patton Street will serve its last meal on June 30th. However, two weeks later, owner Eric Zackrison plans to open a new venue in that space called the Blue Plate Bar and Restaurant.
The move comes as Zackrison and his wife Julie file for personal bankruptcy. You may recall Zackrison filed for Chapter 13 earlier this year, but it did not include the building. This filing stops a foreclosure on the building and halts its sale scheduled for next Wednesday.
The Blue Plate will be open seven days a week and will serve lunch as well as brunch on Saturday and Sunday.
"It's comfort food. It's a real relaxed atmosphere. It's not going to be a destination restaurant where you have to get dressed up and ready and all that. It's just going to be a place where you can go and have a good time and have a couple of cold beers and some good old home cooking." says Zackrison.
Zackrison does say there are plans to eventually reopen Agrario on the south or east side of
