Heritage Public House (1901 Mendocino Ave, Santa Rosa) has shuttered, effective immediately.
According to proprietor Dino D’Argenzio, the turnover of the kitchen and management to restaurateur Josh Silvers in April 2015, “didn’t fit” and the parties have ended the relationship on a “friendly note”. Several months ago, BiteClub tasted through the menu, which was impressive, but recently was cut back significantly.
“It’s disappointing it didn’t work out,” said Silvers. “The team was really gelling. I’m hopeful in this time of employee deficits they will get snapped up fast,” he added. Silvers is the owner of Jackson’s Bar and Oven and does frequent restaurant consulting.
Bloodline Brewing Co., which launched at the restaurant in 2014 and was a significant part of their tap program will continue brewing offsite and focus on increased distribution throughout the Bay Area. Bloodline is co-owned by several members of the D’Argenzio family.
The Heritage Public House building is available for lease, and D’Argenzio said he has some “exciting prospects”.
“We’d like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank the community for supporting us over the last four years. It has been a pleasure getting to know you, serving you and being a part of the vibrant SRJC neighborhood,” said D’Argenzio on the Heritage Public House Facebook page.
