New restaurant expected to take over Columbia space

April 25, 2001|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Visitors to Centre Park Drive in Columbia may soon be able to dine again in the space where the Tavern at Centre Park once was.

Greg Carey, vice president of JPB Enterprises, which owns the building at 8808 Centre Park Drive, said yesterday that the company expects to have a new occupant sign a lease to occupy the space within a month or two and open a restaurant. The tavern will not be coming back, however.

The old restaurant, which also was owned by portfolio holding company JPB, was closed in January after executives decided to divest themselves of their restaurant ventures. The tavern, which had hired a head chef who offered menu changes in November, was the last restaurant that JPB closed, Carey said.
