RichmondBizSense is reporting on 3 new Fan area restaurants coming soon.
First, the Republic, coming in October to the old Cabo’s spot (2053 W. Broad St. near Meadow). The idea, led by developer Justin French and business parter Matthew Applegat sounds interesting
French said the concept is a “whiskey bar with international comfort food.”
Second, Strange Matter is coming to the chameleon space at 929 W. Grace St. Start your office pool now for how long Strange Matter will be there. Here’s a quick rundown of recent occupants:
In the past few years, it has had a run of tenants including Twisters, Nine Two Nine, Nanci Raygun and, most recently, Bagel Czar, which never quite got off the ground.
Third, Artistry Restaurant & Lounge is coming soon to 802 W. Broad St. That location is in a section of Broad Street that would be well served by some new anchor businesses.
