Though the restaurant closed last month, Krazy Steve’s Comfort Cuisine will continue its catering operations, according to a post on its Facebook page.
“Due to the touching outpouring of support, Krazy Steve’s will continue our famous catering operation,” the post reads. “You can reach out to me via our website, www.krazysteves.com.”
We reported last month that Krazy Steve’s closed its Seminary Road location on January 21. “I have catering gigs scheduled up until basically the day of our closing,” owner Stephen Adelson said last month. “We’re open for business [until then].”
“Like all the restaurants, we’re struggling during COVID,” Adelson said. “When COVID hit, I negotiated with the landlord in good faith a percentage rent.”
The reduced rent was a short-term agreement and the two sides were unable to agree on a long-term deal, as the restaurant was “hemorrhaging money,” he said.
Adelson opened the restaurant in June 2019 featuring barbecue with traditional sides like greens, cole slaw, and corn bread, along with specialty pizzas. He began offering a weekend brunch in November of that year.
Krazy Steve’s, located at 1909 Seminary Rd., was also a brick-and-mortar outlet for Carnivore BBQ, Adelson’s food truck business that he started in 2010 and grew to four trucks.
Adelson said last month that he will look for a new location and may continue to operate the food trucks.
