After three years of business, Hank’s Pasta Bar closed at the end of September, but chef and owner Jamie Leeds plans to reopen the restaurant as Hank & Mitzi’s. The revamped Italian restaurant is slated to open in January 2020, according to Jamie Leeds Restaurant Group’s website.

Executive Chef Will Artley will head Hank & Mitzi’s and will serve rustic entrees, cocktails and personal pizzas, according to their Facebook page.

As part of the reopening, JL Restaurant Group will also be opening Events by Jamie Leeds, an event and catering space with seating for 100 guests on the second floor of the site, and a rooftop bar, according to Events by Jamie Leeds’ Facebook page.

The second-floor event space and rooftop bar will open in spring 2020, according to JL Restaurant Group’s website.
