A Shockoe Bottom pizza joint is shutting its doors Wednesday and plans to reopen this weekend under a new name.
Sette Fire Roasted Pizza is expanding into a 1,700-square-foot space adjacent to its location at 7 N. Main St. and launching 23rd & Main Kitchen & Taproom. The new restaurant, which will feature 12 new taps and add 38 seats, plans to serve its first customers July 6.
“We’re going to be focusing on the craft beers that are so popular right now,” said Sette managing partner Brian Rivers.
The company picked up the lease for the 23rd and Main addition about seven months ago, Rivers said, and the rebranding is about two years in the making.
Work began in March, and Ashland-based M.L. Bell is the contractor for the project. Rivers would not disclose the cost of the improvements.
Sette has been in business for more than eight years. 23rd & Main Kitchen & Taproom will feature a slightly different menu, River said, adding American bistro fare to Sette’s pizza offerings. The new restaurant will also have extended hours.
