Since a fire shut down well-established Anson Restaurant in December 2013, longtime admirers have wondered when, if ever, it may reopen. In 2014, Anson predicted a late summer opening, but that time period passed without a peep. The date moved to November 2014, but the interiors remained empty.
A recent visit to 12 Anson St. revealed construction to the lower dining area, but what makes us think they could be gearing up to reopen soon are the current ads on Craigslist asking for applications for servers, bartenders, and an assistant manager.
