The restaurant is being sold with all its kitchen equipment for $180,000. The monthly rent is $8,500.
It seats 55 and has an outdoor seating area in the back.
Dassara opened on Smith Street in 2012, having taken over the storefront from 'new american' restaurant 'Chestnut'.
This winter has been very tough on restaurants in the neighborhood. Quite a few businesses have called it quits. There are currently quite a few empty storefronts along Smith Street that are looking for a new tenant.
I just received an email from Justin DeSpirito of Dassaro. he wanted to give everyone an update on what is going on with the restaurant. He writes:
"We are exploring moving to a different space in the neighborhood, but haven't taken any serious steps other than to list the space to see if we can get a good offer to cover the cost of moving. Our plan is to stay where we are unless many different moving pieces miraculously fall into place soon.
We'll keep you in the loop if anything does materialize.
In any event, we're adding on a new seafood concept for the summer that we are really excited about and should have details over the next couple of weeks. We had a first tasting last weekend and think that it will be a hit in the neighborhood."
Thanks for the information, Justin. Glad to know that you and your restaurant will continue to be part of the community either at the present location or at a new one in the neighborhood.
