TAMPA, Fla. (TBO.com) — Now that the Epicurean Hotel is open and the Elevage restaurant, Edge Social Drinkery and Chocolate Pi patisserie are serving customers, the owner of Bern’s Steak House announced Monday that sister restaurant SideBern’s will get a major makeover.

David Laxer said the changes at the 18-year-old South Howard Avenue restaurant were long planned following Bern’s Fine Wine & Spirits’ relocation south to the Epicurean from SideBern’s. With all the bottles moved and the space empty, renovating the modern fusion restaurant is now possible.

SideBern’s will close on June 24 so that construction can begin at the award-winning 150-seat restaurant, Laxer said. No reopening date has been set, but it is expected service will restart near the end of the year.
