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.

Jupiter approved a plan to Tuesday to demolish the Circle K gasoline convenience/filling station on the south side of Indiantown Road just west of Alternate A1A and build a bigger one with four more gasoline pumps, bringing the total to 16.

The 1,000-square-foot building will be replaced by a new one that will be about 4,400 square feet.

Total cost will be a bout $4 million.

The council voted down a plan to require the owners to pay the town $75,000 for abandonment of a 25-foot-by-300-foot walkway within the site. The westernmost entry driveway to the Circle K on Indiantown Road will remain.

Annie’s Italian Ice, a longtime local favorite yogurt and ice cream store on the west side of the property, will stay.

Demolish, expand the Circle K on Indiantown Road in Jupiter?

The plan calls for increasing the number of pumps from 12 to 16. The 1,000-square-foot building would be replaced by a new one that would be 4,400 square feet.

The owners of the property, Circle K Stores Inc., would pay the town $75,000 for abandonment of a 25-foot-by-300-foot alleyway within the site. The westernmost entry driveway to the Circle K on Indiantown Road would be eliminated.

A generator to run store operations for a minimum of 72 hours after a storm is planned. So is a 50- kilowatt electric vehicle-charging station.

About 41,000 vehicles travel daily on Indiantown Road between Alternate A1A and Military Trail, according to county records.
