Deni Reilly, owner of the Majestic Grille
along with her husband Patrick, confirmed today that the pair's Majestic Hospitality consulting firm will take over the operations of the Brass Door
. They are working with the Irish pub's owners Meg and Scott Crosby and Seamus Loftus.
The Brass Door has been closed since July.
"There's not too much to tell at this point," says Reilly, noting that the parties just solidified the plans. She says that the site will stay the Brass Door, and that Patrick, who is Irish, is designing a pub menu.
The plan, says Reilly, is to open the side bar first for the sports fans to watch games as soon as a couple weeks, and to have the Brass Door open before the end of the year.
"It's beautiful," says Reilly of the Brass Door. "It's a great concept with a great rep and a great following. We're going in there to tighten some things up."
The Reillys most recently transformed the underperforming Riverfront Bar and Grill into the Front Porch
The Brass Door opened in 2011.
