Kitchen fire closes The Optimist

070612kesslerA grease fire that started in the kitchen ventilation hood last Wednesday has closed The Optimist — the highly successful Westside restaurant owned by Ford Fry.

The fire has caused serious damage to the kitchen and to the building’s exhaust system. The restaurant will remain closed until repairs are completed and the restaurant passes city inspection.

Fry says he hopes to reopen the restaurant sometime next week. In the interim, reservations are being redirected to Fry’s other restaurants, which include JCT. Kitchen & Bar as well as King + Duke.
