It’s official: Jamie Kennedy Wine Bar soon to be just the Wine Bar
Earlier this week, we reported that the sale of Jamie Kennedy Wine Bar was close to official. Well, the ink has dried sooner than expected. A press release today confirmed that Jamie Kennedy has sold the restaurant to long-time protégé Scott Vivian, partnered with his new wife, pastry chef Rachelle Caldwell. Backing the pair are restaurateurs Ted and Mary Koutsogiannopoulos, formerly of Joy Bistro, which they sold last June. We’re assuming the quartet lost little sleep while choosing a new name—the spot will be known simply as the Wine Bar.
As for Kennedy, he is leaving to focus on some newer ventures: the Gilead Café and his Prince Edward County farm and event venue. Look for the Wine Bar to change hands and phone numbers (the new one is 416-504-9463) in early October.
