Pasquale’s restaurant, a once-popular, now-closed Italian eatery near the Jupiter/Tequesta line, is being gutted and remodeled.

The new owners are spending about $1 million remodeling the building and plan on opening next spring. The new restaurant will be called Crosby Kitchen and Bar.

The 4,000-square-foot restaurant was sold in April to Jupiter-based Due South Hospitality.

The company has nothing to do with the Due South brewery in Boynton Beach, said Peter Pace, co-owner of Due South Hospitality with Rob Gillin.

“We’ll have craft cocktails,micro brews and nice wine list. The food will be American bistro,” said Pace, who lives in Abacoa.

The 120-seat restaurant, with the storefront striped green, white and red — the colors in the Italian flag — had been operated by Joe and Wendy LoDuca since 1975, according to its website.

The building is on 1/2-half acre of land just west of North Alternate A1A on Cypress Drive.
