A café and restaurant are scheduled to open in 2016 and 2017, respectively, in the Arts and Transit Neighborhood near Forbes College, University Director of Community and Regional Affairs Kristin Appelget said.
The restaurant will be opened at the same time as the construction of a new facility associated with the Lewis Center for the Arts, Appelget said.
The two buildings housing the café and restaurant have been a part of the Arts and Transit Project since it were first proposed in 2013, Appelget said.
The Arts and Transit Project, which is slated for completion in 2017, has also involved the relocation of the Wawa, the construction of a new Dinky stationand the construction of new facilities associated with the Lewis Center for the Arts and the Department of Music.
Appelget said that the Terra Momo Restaurant Group, which operates three restaurants in the Princeton area, was originally selected to operate the restaurant and café but that the group has decided to step aside and not move forward in the project.
“We had a mutually agreeable parting of ways,” Appelget explained.
As a result, the University has reached out again to decide who the new café and restaurant operator will be, Appelget said.
Co-owner of the Terra Momo group Carlo Momo declined to specify the reason behind the termination of the negotiation but said that he and the University could not agree on general terms.
