This note just in from Cliff Bramble, co-owner of Rathbun’s, Krog Bar, Kevin Rathbun Steak and KR SteakBar:
“We had a small fire in the restaurant on Thursday. Everything is getting repaired at this point. Here is the info that we just posted on our website.”
TO OUR LOYAL GUESTS: On July 4th, at 6:00 a.m., Rathbun’s experienced a small fire in the kitchen in which the fire marshal believes started in the hood system. The end result was fire, water, and smoke damage within the restaurant.
We have an amazing restoration company restoring and repairing the damage to the restaurant and hope to be open by July 11th. Thankfully, nobody was hurt and nobody was in the building at the time.
Based upon the fire marshals recommendations and the completion of the renovations within the restaurant, we are planning to re-open later this week with a brand new kitchen, fresh paint throughout the restaurant, new equipment, new curtains, and new pots and pans.
We appreciate all of your loyal support during this time and we look forward to seeing you in our new and updated restaurant. Please visit our other restaurants during this time.
