Steven and Ellen Gedra's new place, at 367 Connecticut St., is going to be called The Black Sheep Restaurant and Bar.
Steven Gedra said details are to come.
The Gedras’ tiny Elmwood Avenue restaurant has 28 seats, where the chef-baker couple has cultivated a loyal following with traditional and original compositions of fresh seafood, nose-to-tail heirloom pork, and inspired uses of local produce. Then there's the desserts, with standards like sticky toffee pudding and specials like slices of Bunyan-sized housemade Ho-Hos, served with local berries.
It closes on March 31, and after that the Gedras will be working on the building they bought, the former Golden Key Tavern. They hope to have The Black Sheep open in 2014.
Lots of people who have been turned away in the last year are looking forward to the new restaurant, expected to seat 50 at tables and more at the bar.
