Dewey LoSasso has announced that "after 5 years, including almost 2 years of Biscayne Blvd. construction and 5 Hurricanes (2004-2006), North One 10 is seeking potential buyers".
"Those first two years killed us", says Dewey of the batshit-crazy, business-crippling construction that made driving to North One 10 a downright chore. "Now is a great opportunity for someone else to take over...and really to benefit from the hard times we endured."
Dewey is willing to assist any potential buyer with the transition.
"We survived all of the issues because of two groups of people --our customers and our employees," says Dewey. " I am so thankful for the support that we have received from so many friends."
And we should all be giving thanks to Dewey and Dale LoSasso for making North One 10 one of our first chef-driven neighborhood restaurants (remember: it was pre-Michy and pre-Michael), and for giving us food folks everything we had been asking for: Fresh, high quality ingredients creatively and skillfully presented, along with great wines, at moderate prices, in a friendly environment. Even to this day we've only got a handful of places that can pull this off.
Meanwhile, the restaurant is still operating Thursdays through Saturdays throughout the summer. If you haven't yet been, check it out. If you have been, then you might want to return again soon -- while you can. After all, it's not often we get advance notice that a favorite restaurant will be leaving us. Let's consider the rest of this summer The North One 10 Farewell Tour.
For more information about the sale, and lease terms, you can contact Dewey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
