Krazy Steve’s Comfort Cuisine will close later this month, according to owner Stephen Adelson.
The planned closing date at this point, he said Sunday, will be on or about Jan. 21.
“I have catering gigs scheduled up until basically the day of our closing,” he said. “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., is 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 he will look for a new location and may continue to operate the food trucks.
Krazy Steve’s closing was first reported by The MoCo Show.
