You can stop waiting for Annie’s Vintage Gourmet restaurant to reopen on Indiantown Road in Jupiter — the 3,900-square-foot bottom floor has been gutted and a new tenant is being sought.

Three new tenants moved into the second floor of the yellow building 1132 W. Indiantown Rd., next to Burrito Brothers restaurant, according to leasing agent Robert Hamman.

The once-popular eatery on the first floor closed in last summer.

The one-acre parcel is on the south side of Indiantown Road, between Delaware Boulevard and Pennock Lane.

Work started at Pasquale’s restaurant, a once-popular, now-closed Italian eatery near the Jupiter/Tequesta line, in November.

Work started at Pasquale’s in November, 2016

But since then, not much has happened.

The new owners in November told the Palm Beach Post they are spending about $1 million remodeling the building and plan on opening this spring.

The new restaurant will be called Crosby Kitchen and Bar, they said.

 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,” Pace, who lives in Abacoa, told the Post in November.

The new owners could not be reached.

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.

How tall is this new restaurant in Jupiter?

Boaters on the Loxahatchee River and motorists on U.S. 1 passing by might be wondering:

Just how tall is 1000 North, the new restaurant under construction that is partly-owned by former NBA star Michael Jordan?

It’s about 50 feet to the peak of the tower, according to the plans approved by the Jupiter town council.

How tall is 50 feet?

  • The nearby U.S. 1 bridge over the Loxahatchee River is 25 feet.
  • The Blue Heron Bridge is 65 feet.
  • The Wyndham Grand Jupiter hotel at Harbourside Place is also about 65 feet.
  • The Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse is 108 feet.
  • The light poles at Roger Dean Stadium are 150 feet.

The plan for 1000 North calls for a 1,500-square-foot second floor private club for members and their guests only.

There will be a 450-square-foot outdoor patio for food and beverages.

Memberships will be about $2,500 annually.

There will be a public transient dock with nine boat slips where boaters can stop for about three hours.

The first floor of the 340-seat restaurant, which also will have an indoor and outdoor bar, will be open to the public.

Opening is planned for the end of the year.
