Now, the mighty Michael Klein reports that there is hope for (the Rachael Ray-featured) Deuce:
“Indications are strong that Deuce, the Northern Liberties pub that closed Sunday, will reopen in mere weeks. This would cheer up Rachael Ray’s producers, who were all over the joint 48 hours before, shooting the Food Network show Rachael Ray’s Tasty Travels. Supervising producer Wade Sheeler yesterday said he was “shocked” at hearing of the shutdown. Former owner Laura Vernola said she knew of the closing, but had been confident that the restaurant would reopen under new management before the show’s scheduled premiere in early summer.”
We’ll keep you posted of the reopening as it happens.
