Whether you realize it or not, you are familiar with 464 Boston Post Road.
It is the building that once housed the popular Jacob Marley’s Restaurant for many, many years, after that it changed hands a couple of times and so quickly that none of the former businesses are even remotely familiar anymore.
As the cleanup and renovations begin, many residents wonder if Prime 16 Tap House & Burgers can make it there.
This 5,000 sq ft restaurant space, last home to Mark Barry’s directly across from Material Girls and Kaoud Rugs has so much potential, all it needs is an experienced restauranteur to make it a success.
Bob Porter owns three New Haven Restaurants; Prime 16 Tap House & Burgers , 172 Temple St.; C.O. Jones, a Mexican Restaurant at 969 State St.; and the New Haven Meatball House, an Italian Restaurant at 1180 Chapel St.
Potter is partnering with Jon Bara, who has an extensive corporate restaurant background.
The restaurant is being completely renovated and if all goes according to schedule it is expected to open by May 1.
We wish them success at this location.
