Although calls to the New Zealander Restaurant and Pub on Webster Street have not been returned, there seems to be some effort to resurrect the establishment.
Conversations on the restaurant review site Yelp include a discussion about its possible return.
Mike T. of San Ramon says, “I’m currently in the process of working with the new owner on getting this place open. We are currently looking to refresh the restaurant, while keeping the same concept and same chef.”
He notes that this effort could take a while: “We ask that you be patient with this change over as there have been paperwork bottlenecks, (especially with the liquor license), that need to get cleared up. Please visit the [restuarant’s]website, which will be updated with further information, and we look forward to seeing all of you back when we reopen.”
Well OK, mates, there’s the latest. We’ll hope to see the doors open sooner rather than later.
It’s a pity the pub’s had troubles. It had the privilege of being visited by some members of the New Zealand All Blacks rugby team just late last year.
