One of Richmond’s biggest restaurateurs is about to bring a Fan location back to life.
Pearl should be up and running for dinner and brunch by early February, according to Michelle Williams, a partner in the restaurant group.
“We have done a complete overhaul of the place,” Williams said in an email to BizSense. “We have closed in the mezzanine and created a new entrance on Main Street for the upstairs lounge, which is a separate place, name still to be determined.”
The group has also made some progress on the former Glass & Powder building at 2934 W. Cary St. The company is converting the former surf shop into a natural food cafe tentatively called the Daily Kitchen and Bar.
Williams said that restaurant is shooting for a March opening.
