Popoli’s announces it will close doors for good
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) — Popoli Ristorante and Sullivan’s Bar announced Thursday that the Popoli owners will discontinue operations on Dec. 20 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Popoli made the announcement Thursday via Facebook.
The restaurant says it will still honor gift cards prior to Dec. 20.
The owners of Popoli have not yet announced future plans for the restaurant part of the building, but are hopeful a use can be found that they say “honors the historic significance and beauty of the building and interior.” The remainder of the building will continue to operate as a commercial space for ImOn Communications and Kepros Physical Therapy and Performance.
The Cedar Rapids-based restaurant also announced the transfer of equipment and information related to its catering business to Popoli’s Managing Partner Jude Villafana, who will operate as Peppercorn Food Company in the future.
