Jamie Kennedy's Gilead Cafe closing and up for sale

Acclaimed chef Jamie Kennedy has announced that the Gilead CafĂŠ & Wine Bar will serve its last supper at the end of next month. The Corktown restaurant, known for organic, sustainable and locavore fare, opened in 2008 and has operated in various incarnations of bistro, cafe, event space and wine bar since.

Chef will continue to operate Jamie Kennedy Kitchens, as well as pursue new opportunities but whatever comes next will happen elsewhere. The space at 4 Gilead is up for sale, advertised as a potential turnkey operation that could be reopened under new management by April 1.

Would-be restaurateurs looking for a charming yet hip mid-sized restaurant (equipped with a massive catering kitchen no less), need apply. You can even keep the name.
