Francesca’s Wine Bar and Bistro officially reopened its doors on Wednesday, Jan. 25.
The Nadeau family, which originally opened the restaurant in the fall of 2012, reopened the doors Wednesday.
In August of 2015, the family had sold the business to a different partnership, and the doors closed in October of 2016.
However, the Nadeaus have opened the restaurant again with original owners Francesca and Don taking a more minor role and their son Jonathan, who is also executive chef, as the primary owner.
However, Francesca and Don will still be a presence at the restaurant, especially for the next year.
“I feel like we never left, like it was yesterday,” Francesca Nadeau said Wednesday evening. “It feels so natural. It’s wonderful. It really is.”
