Why Richmond restaurant Acacia is closing
RICHMOND, Va. — With its longtime tenant on the way out, a restaurant property between the Fan and Carytown is in the hands of a new owner, whose intentions for the building remain a mystery.
Acacia Mid-Town’s building at 2601 W. Cary St. sold last week for $1.18 million, a few weeks before the popular restaurant is set to close after two decades in business.
Teasing the idea that they may come back for seconds, Aline Reitzer, who with husband Dale Reitzer has run Acacia since 1998, said last week they’re not stepping away permanently from the restaurant industry.
“We’ve got a couple ideas and thoughts of our next move, but (we’re) not in a place to share anything yet,” Reitzer said. “We will pop up again, though.”
