Is The Village Tavern permanently closed? Are they renovating? The paper covering the windows has locals wondering...
A call to the downtown Ridgefield restaurant went unanswered as did a note sent to their Facebook Page. The last communication the restaurant had on their Facebook Page was on Thursday, November 14 when they advertised weekday Happy Hour.
This isn't the first time the restaurant suddenly closed. In January of 2019, a change in ownership prompted the closure. Several months later, The Village Tavern reopened with Chef Germano Minin (Food Network "Chopped" winner) as owner and operator.
The Village Tavern has become a neighborhood favorite. The eatery is especially busy during warmer months when patrons can sit outdoors.
