The Hopewell Theater production company is looking for a partner who would run a restaurant at 7 W. Broad St. in Hopewell Borough, site of the recently closed Brothers Moon.
Mitchel Skolnick purchased the building from Brothers Moon chef-owner Will Mooney last year. Skolnick co-owns the Hopewell Theater building with Jon McConaughy and Liza Moorehouse, and also separately owns the Hopewell Theater production company. Sara Scully is executive director and co-founder of the production company.
A media release from the Hopewell Theater production company states that the goal is to create a destination arts center giving theater patrons a place to relax and enjoy a meal before or after a show, as well as entertainment related to theater programming such as meet-the-artist VIP receptions, afternoon unplugged concerts, book signings and readings.
The company is looking to hire a chef-restaurateur who would take charge of operations at the new restaurant. The new partner would also be asked to reimagine the theater’s dine-in concession menu as well as its occasional supper and brunch clubs. Renovations on the building are expected to begin in spring 2019. Web: hopewelltheater.com.
